25 it's not what you do next

‘We must ask what happens because of what happens next?’*

‘The end isn’t the point, of course.  It is the journey, the mightness.’**

There’s another step, another moment, and after that, another.

Most of us are canny enough to know there’s something not quite right in our lives most of the time.

The important thing is to do something, to take another step; maybe not for that step but for the one that’ll follow and the one after that.

Perhaps what we want most of all is to know we’re making the most of this one life as we possibly can.  To keep moving because there’s time and room and energy to do this.

These thoughts are most of all for those make themselves available to those who are asking questions, those who open up the future for others, and those beyond.
