"In the journey of life that each of us takes, no one part is more important than another when examining the whole and weighing this experience against that experience; this time in our life as opposed to that time.
As children of blissful ignorance to the sometimes cruelty and harshness of the world, our loving parents seek to protect us in our childhood innocence until the true identity of 'The Tooth Fairy,' and 'Father Christmas' can no longer be realistically disguised and advice pertaining to the 'talking to strangers' and particularly those strange-looking men in long trench coats offering passing children tempting sweets can no longer be postponed.
As growing teenagers, we hopefully retain our love for all animal life and gradually grow to appreciate that even a cat can look at a queen or derive great pleasure from smelling the flowers as they pass by as much as humans do.
For those of us who are blessed to meet their true love and soul mate before their journey's end, the simple things of life assume greater significance as do the thoughts, feelings and hardships of all others. We become for the first time in our life so filled with happiness and contentment that the mere sight of the sun shining down its resplendent rays across the valley of our thoughts open our mental horizons to all things being possible, if one wills it hard enough.
Thus, the start of life's journey, its passage and its arrival at the final destination are all included in the price of one ticket and its experience cannot be told in any single stage without reference to another episode of experience and time. William Forde : July 17th, 2013.
