Today I had an amazing conversation with my friend C, who is my sister for life. It was one of those conversations that is only possible because of all the conversation that came before over the long 20 years of our friendship. The kind of conversation where you know, and are fully known. Much of that conversation will remain hidden-away in the vaults — at least for now — but one part is worth sharing with you: the part of the conversation where we reflected on the wisdom of letting life have her way with you. She’s going to anyway, and the less you resist, the more likely it is that she’ll dump you out on some hospitable shore. With your direction thus set by whomever it is that’s in charge of such things, you can then proceed with your hard-working, hustling ways, which you were going to do anyway, but what a relief to do it with the certainty that you are headed the right way.
