Too Much Caution is Not Prudent

not for safety from danger,
but for deliverance from fear.
It is the storm within which endangers him,
not the storm without.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is beauty and serenity in the eye of the storm.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Whatever the challenges that actually confront any of us on a given day,
the potential threats are always far greater.
There are always an array of catastrophes overhanging our lives -
wars, terrorists, hurricanes, earthquakes, escaped murderers,
child molesters, and maybe a runaway asteroid.
In comparison with what "could" happen, our lives are rather serene.

Rather than worrying about the continuous stream of potential threats,
let us give thanks for our blessing of living in the eye-of-the-storm -
our protected refuge from the terrors
of fearsome dangers just outside our lives.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Too Much Caution is Not Prudent.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I walk today's march with courage.
I create today as my celebration of life.
