Enjoying the Ride

27 Jun

“The boy and his horse had once set out for the sun and quickly learned what others had tried to put into words- that becoming is probably better than being, that there is only one thing in between and that is the ride. The ride is everything- not the arrival at some distant or imagined spot of light from which you would probably just see another spot of light and then another until you didn’t know where you were or maybe you would even fall from the sky like Icarus for flying too near the sun or end up floating facedown in your swimming pool like Gatsby, who had worshiped too closely to the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. No, there was no question about it: Forget about the light. Just keep your head down and stay on the ride.” – Liberating Paris by Linda Bloodworth Thomas

    Loving your quotes! I’ve been on the lookout for something new and can never find anything so fresh. Water park looks like a blast!
