New Beginnings

The start of a new chapter and the end of an old one.

Looking forward to the future. Turning away from the past.

Tears of joy. Tears of sadness. Flowing freely together.

Memories completed await new memories not yet formed.

Life is a series if beginnings and endings, often mingling the joy of the new start with the regret of abandoning what was once important tinged with Regret for things not done.

“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing,
therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human
being let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not
pass this way again.”

Stephen Grellet, 1773-1855
French-born Quaker Minister
