Rural Metaphors Abound!

Adversity sucks. Hard.

But...It's hardly ever Sisyphean. If we struggle and if we're smart, we learn the lessons and we don't have to keep rolling that same rock up that hill. We may have to roll a hundred different rocks uphill, but over time, we ought to develop better ways to roll the rocks, and maybe even a way to roll the rock downhill occasionally.

And once again, I'm struck by how lucky I've been in this love. Lori and I pull together as a team. Like a couple of tiny little draft oxen yoked to the great big lumpy boulder of destiny, we continue to haul that Mo'Fo' uphill.

Warms your heart, doesn't it?
