Words swirling around various blogs made me think of this quote I like by Anais Nin:
"We don't see things as they are; we see them as we are."
I have more to say about this, and about the various subjects on other blogs, but in writing my thoughts I decided to search for something to link to about Anais Nin (tangents, always!). I found several websites including this one: Anais Nin Web Site
"There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person."
"Life shrinks or expands according to one's courage."
