quote of the day

"Tell me a story . . .

what kind of story, child?

A story with a happy ending.

There's no such thing in all the world.

As a happy ending?

As an ending."

- Jeanette Winterson

For some reason, this has been running through my head this morning.
I love the thought that our stories never end. So we don't have to worry so much about that happy ending afterall.
Continual new beginnings.
Continual chances.
Continual hope.

I've been coming to that conclusion a lot lately. There's this feeling of the upcoming end...of school, of getting ready to leave on vacation, of being ready for Christmas or whatever. There is no end though. Life keeps going whether or not I'm completely ready for it and that is actually a relief to me. I don't have to have everything done today because the tomorrows will just keep coming whether I'm ready or not. It's actually a good thing.
