The Glorious Debris

“Every one of us
 is called upon, probably many
 times, to start a new life. 
A frightening diagnosis, a
marriage, a move, loss of a job…
And onward full tilt we go,
pitched and wrecked and absurdly
resolute, driven in spite of 
everything to make good on a 
new shore. To be hopeful, to
embrace one possibility after
another—that surely is the basic
instinct…..Crying out: High tide!
Time to move out into the
glorious debris. Time to take 
this life for what it is.”

          --Barbara Kingsolver, from High Tide in Tucson
