Sideways

<Oct. 25/14> This day went sideways on me in a big way.

But that’s OK.

 

Life – my little life – went sideways on me years ago.

 

The cool thing about life going sideways on you

Is you learn to live a sideways kind of life!

 

There is not necessarily less joy in sideways living.

 

Provided you’re clever enough to learn habits like gratitude

& love Nature, music, walking, friends

& other pleasures, “large” & “small”

 

It may even be you learn to spot joy sooner!

Since it so often seems to arrive from unplanned directions

 

Coming at you sideways, when you least expect it.
