Sometimes it whizzes by in a blur. It's a rough and ready ride.
Sometimes it seems to move at a snails pace. Everything grinds to a halt.
Sometimes we're thrown out into the middle of it, to find our own way out.
Sometimes we're given a companion to share and learn with, and discover new things.
But sometimes? When life starts to get the better of you? Smile. And it becomes a tiny bit easier. (The boys advise me that sticking out your tongue and laughing scores bonus points.)
