The Joy and the Sorrow

Each life has a defining Joy and a defining Sorrow that serve to set that life apart and accentuate it individual charm and genius.

When they write our biographies, the writers will dwell on them, perhaps a bit too long, seeking to magically derive some incredible insight into not only our lives - the subject of the biographies - but into Life itself.

Life becomes two dimensional when it is defined. From our standpoint, the defining by joy and sorrow imprisons us; from the point of view of our biographers, the definition makes their job phenomenally easier.

It is our job to transcend all such definitions. --
