"Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens."~Ralph Waldo Emerson
What we perceive as endings are actually new norms. We move forward not always because we want to, but because we need to.

(Editorial note: This is NOT a Christmas song, even though it is often mistaken for one and sung as such. It is a song of lament and of what happens next. It is so often associated with Dolly Parton that many people think that she wrote it.)
