If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Life in Transition

Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two. Octavio Paz

The child and parent.

The student and teacher.

The reader and writer.

Back and forth.

Within and without.

Moving from one to the other.

Life in transition.

And Paz said wisdom is in the dialectic between the two.
