Life is what happens

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." John Lennon

Anyone else feel like that today? If we lived in some remote place all by ourselves, perhaps (and even then...) we might manage to stick to our priorities, plans and to do lists. But, I know I would be lonely and far less creative than I am in the "real world". Life and our relationships with others are often more complicated and more unpredictable than we would like, but that really is "real life". We learn to be patient, take things one day at a time. We become masters in adaptation. Do you know what Darwin said?

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."

I think Darwin would be shocked today to see all the changes we human beings have produced and adapted to. We are really quite extraordinary!

So, while I am off adapting to the various things that have interrupted  my blogging plans, I leave you with this cute video that my daughter Jackie took of our cat adapting to technology!
