Resting on a step

Sometimes, when I think about making my way through life, I visualize hauling myself up a ziggurat. It's a metaphor for the alternating periods of intense struggle and quiet calm that seem to mark the course of my existence.

Today, as I mark the midway point of my fourth decade on Earth, I'm surprised to find myself in the midst of a calm phase. I'm actually pretty darned satisfied with my current state of affairs. I mean sure there's still a great deal to learn and achieve, but when it comes down to it, right now I pretty much have everything in hand that I want and need.

To put it in I ♥ Huckabees terms, at this moment, I have achieved a state of "Pure Being", but I will inevitably be drawn back into "The Human Drama", so I should enjoy the Zen while I can. Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooom...
