"When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills," Linda MaNamar.

So many changes lately. For us, moving back to our permanent home, finding out the winter-respite we have created for ourselves will not be there next year, neighbors moving, family members who greatly support me moving, friends surging forward professionally while I spend my life focused on caregiving, body changes (hiked 4 miles yesterday and felt physically like I had not done that in years!), changes in social networks with loss of some significant ones when we moved. So, is it windmills or walls? For me, right now, it seems to be both. I will focus more on nonresistence or building windmills. Perhaps gratitude will help.
