I read this quote on my niece’s blog today. It struck a chord –  resonates like happenstance does when you are not questioning or in search of an answer until all of a sudden one appears.

Our dream of life will end as dreams do end, abruptly and completely, when the sun rises, when the light comes. And we will think, All that fear and all that grief were about nothing. But that cannot be true. I can’t believe we will forget our sorrows altogether. That would mean forgetting we had lived, humanly speaking. Sorrow seems to me to be a great part of the substance of human life.  (Marilynne Robinson, Gilead)
