Under the Lid

Secrets are such tantalizing things. They are like magnets. The moment you learn about the existence of one, you feel the overpowering need to uncover it.

Discovering the nature of secrets is one of the most powerful things that drive us.

But then, so many things drive us. Hunger, desire. A full bladder. A swarm of bees.

Keep in mind, some secrets, like packages of gourmet smelly cheese, may reveal more than you bargained for.

So before you lift the lid from that boiling kettle, be sure you have a thick potholder and towels, and a proper spoon to stir the unknown contents.

Holding Hands

Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone's hand is the beginning of a journey.

At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.

You or I?

Was it you or I who stumbled first?

It does not matter.

The one of us who finds the strength to get up first, must help the other.

Money and Fire

Money is like fire.

It is only good when there's just the right amount of it, when it's properly contained and under your control.
