Odd that we expect life to be linear, one foot in front of the other, with a clear view of how to live our lives. Everything is circuitous, convoluted, and seen imperfectly.

Wisdom teaches us to be patient with the ridiculous setbacks we’re all going to encounter.
You can drive around the roundabout 247 times if you need to.
