One does not live an extraordinary life.  Life is an extraordinary experience.

Engagement is paramount.  Thinking that you are the director with the final say is pure folly.

Happenstance In Three Words

Apropos of absolutely nothing, while waiting at a stop light / crosswalk, a stranger standing beside me turned and said, "You are forgiven." 

He then strolled off before the light switched to a walk signal in my direction.

I am sure I have much that requires forgiveness, but how awesomely weird is life some days?

"You are forgiven."   

Three small and powerful words offered without specificity, judgment, or condition.

I hope I never recall that "happenstance" moment without feeling goosebumps
