"No one who has gained wisdom wishes to be young again."
In these between years of elderly parents and fledged children, we stand in a marvellous place: we have finally accepted the fact that pain and suffering are unavoidable, but in it, we find mystery too. We have learned to recognize the presence of joy and love, even there.
The Frisian horse - a creature of near mythical stature - stands as the figure, Mystery. May we have the courage to lean into it.
