|"A Trip to the Moon."|
Because catalogs persist in showing us plus-size clothing on model-size models, we order with hope in our hearts, visions of loveliness making us nearly drunk with anticipation. Reality often has different plans. If we hadn't tried, we wouldn't know.
We continue to try on this existenc, that is our mission. Mary Chapin Carpenter sings of, "...a life that's never safe and dry." So it should be. If the answers were known, why would we ever explore or step beyond the known, the tried, the relatively true? It only takes one solution to erase the discouragement of the first million attempts, or something very like that.
And in case you forgot, very little agrees to being hurried. Like, say, love.
