"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages."-William Shakespeare, "As You Like It" (Act II Scene 7)

The chapters of one's life
are eras in their own right:
Lives change
faster than times change;
No one can ever stay the same

It's strange
being someone who can feel even the subtle winds of change
Sometimes I think I'm insane,
but I never turn out the same

can take away the past shame;
Every time you lose at checkers,
you can start a new game
Every time you fall in love,
your soul becomes untamed

The chapters of one's life
are eras in their own right,
yet each life is a long story:
Consecutive eras
are chained together,
Losing no meaning in the vortex of time

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-Jeremiah 33:3, King James Version

"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."-Psalm 119:105, New Living Translation

The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.

"Writing is truly glorious in that an author can put on paper the words that fear denies the voice to speak."-from my short story, "Set Free"

"...What you feel is what you are;
What you are is beautiful..."
-from "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.

Aubri, a. k. a. "Leopard Lady"
