I am trying to go to bed early (for me) because I made the insane choice of starting an eleven hour work day tomorrow at 8:00 in the morning - will be worth it but sleep is the responsible choice here.

I have been thinking a lot lately about the lack of control we really have in our lives and want to share two quotes I like on that theme.

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us." -- Joseph Campbell

"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity." -- Gilda Radner
