The long and winding road
How long does it take?
The way changes direction
Am I lost?
To move forward I must turn around
Can I turn back?
Absorb the kindness and listen
When will I find the center?
A measured response hears
Can I stay?
To walk the walk
I must follow the way

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way:
"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say,
'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called
me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so
smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart.
I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."
Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony

Thank you Carl for your fine poem. Today on a quieter day, I’m appreciating the chance to read it a few times. Then close my eyes and dive deeper into the frequent change in direction, needing to turn around, going with the inconsistency’s and irregularities of living. I need to walk a labyrinth now. Be well friend.
Indeed, live long and prosper
