Some of us try so hard to dredge up the positive, the beautiful in a situation because, I think, we're not hard-wired to see it (or we were and, somewhere along the way, those wires crossed). But what I'm learning is that we don't need to try so hard. In fact, I'm not sure we need to try at all.
I think, as the saying goes, hope floats.
If only we would stop shoving it back under in our desperate attempt at rescue. We, too, after all have some skill with buoyancy.
