Day 58-Happiness is … beautiful blogging


“Sooner or later in life everyone discovers that perfect happiness is unrealizable, but there are few who pause to consider the antithesis: that perfect unhappiness is equally unattainable.” – Primo Levi

My allegiance to meant-to-be vs coincidence is finicky. Today I am happily forced into the meant-to-be camp. WOW! Thank you to Marjorie, (, who awarded me a beautiful blogger award on a challenging day.

I have noticed in the past that my writing gets put to the wayside at the times I need it the most. The harder life gets, the deeper the black hole goes, the less I write. It’s time for a change.
