Unexpectedly wise quote from a friend

… It’s okay to feel as if your heart has been stomped on. That’s why we wear it out on our sleeve — to give it some air, some space, to dry it and dust it off, mend it and get back in the game. Not the game of love, mind you. The game of life. If you keep it inside, it stays injured and cannot heal properly…. Onward! Through the fog!

— from a friend’s email this morning. Sometimes friends can still surprise me with their wisdom. I like that.

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
