Straws, Grasping and the Man

There will be many seasons in a man’s life when the normal seems too ordinary. The new seems extraordinary, and the heart is unsearchable.

What then does a man do?

Does he seek the council of the wise or test and learn, simply to despise the failure from which he has learned so much.

Let it not be so.

Trying and failing is a triumph in courage. Loved and lost and all, it seems.

Try and try again is the motto of a man in his season of life with restless fallow field.

Press on, plow in, break dirt and let the seed be stored for tomorrow.
