Answers and Questions

The other day a friend sent me the following quote because it brought me to mind. I really like the quote so I thought I put it here.

... An answer is a place where we can fall asleep as life moves past us to its next question....Perhaps the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company.
- Rachel Naomi Remen

I am old enough to know that I have lots of questions (and am willing to ask others to travel with me on pursuing the answers).

What a family

It was a cold night when I got home, sub-zero temperatures. When I arrived home, however, I couldn't pull into the garage. Because of the cold, the garage door had gotten twisted and fallen off the track.

What to do. The garage door company closed at 4:00 and it was only going to get colder.

We did what any family would do (well, maybe not just any family). We rebuilt the door.

We pulled the sections of the door off that had fallen and, panel by panel, put it back up. Kudos to Marj & Kyle for the teamwork.

We'll have to live without an automatic garage door for a while but I think that is manageable.
