I have been thinking about change a lot over the last couple of days. Change is enevitable it happens constantly and comes to us all. I read a quote in the Science Museum in London which said something like "The only thing that will not change is the fact that there will always be change"

I love this from W.H. Auden.

We would rather be ruined than changed;
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the moment
And let our illusions die.

I also liked this quote:

After you've done a thing the same way for two years, look it over carefully. After five years, look at it with suspicion. And after ten years, throw it away and start all over. ~Alfred Edward Perlman, New York Times, 3 July 1958

A friend of mine once said "If we always do what we have always done, we will always have what we always had"....

So – life is a journey:
a hazardous voyage of discovery;
and we must negotiate our passage
past adversity and trauma
undaunted like a stream rippled by jagged rocks
on its steady descent to the sea.
