Last week I received in the mail a copy of the latest newsletter from my old school, a place I last attended over fifty years ago. It was filled with reminiscences from past students and obituaries of contemporaries. I was struck with the seemingly mundane existence of some of them, although the lives as written were probably nothing compared to their real lives.

It did get me thinking, though, of how few of us get to experience beyond the mundane for most of the time. Now and again we might manage a foray into the unknown or take a risk a little bit more than we have done in the past. To live life to the full is to be always prepared to take those risks, to extend beyond the boundaries of what can so easily become our comfortable existences.

After all, don’t we love it when we have taken that chance to do or to be something that is unfamiliar? And if that’s true for you and you’ve enjoyed living a little, why not go the whole way?

In peace
