This too shall pass, goes the old axiom. It sounds good on the surface, but I’d argue that it’s wrong in form and in fact.
We are moving through space and time. Our lives are a continuum. Events and circumstances are fence posts along our way. We pass them.
Some take longer to pass than others, but pass them we will.
But, are we limited to passing? Can we not take a different route altogether? I think that we can. We can also go over, under or through, can’t we?
Sometimes events seem to over take us and it’s easy to be overwhelmed. I think we’d do well to step on the gas, roll down the windows and crank the tunes – distract ourselves and enjoy the ride.
These things too, we shall pass.
