November 30--Out and In

Look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.  --Tom Stoppard

    Earthly death is the big example here, leaving life as we have known it to return to wherever we were before we arrived here. I believe that to be an eternally blissful energy state. I'm thinking that the combination of eternity and unending bliss gets boring, so we periodically sign up to come back among the living for adventures--yet another exit/entrance combo.
    We leave the "nest" and create an adult life. We leave jobs, we go to new ones. We end relationships and form new friendships. We leave home and enjoy a vacation in a new spot. In looking for a photo for today's post, I saw the quote "When one door closes, another one opens, but sometimes it's hell in the hallway." Sometimes we get mentally and emotionally stuck in the exit, regretting the loss, and it's tough to see the good in the entrance. It always comes though, even if it is not in the form we may have expected. 
    Another quote I encountered: "If one door closes and another one opens, your house is probably haunted." 
    Always an adventure,
