I was wrong

Holiness and play always tend to overlap.  So do poetic imagination and faith.*
(Johan Huizinga)

And in all the seriousness of truth, listen: without It a human being cannot live.  But whoever lives only with that is not human.**
(Martin Buber)

I get things wrong a lot of the time.

I need to admit it.  After that, I need to get back into the game that is life and it takes playfulness rather than seriousness to try again, to reconnect to the story that I want to live rather than how I messed things up.  The universe wants us to get on and play, not to dwell on the bad but to play the good game.
