Forster's enigmatic words, "At the side of the everlasting why, is a yes, and a yes, and a yes", from his novel, A Room With a View, have been rattling around in my head this week, as well. It is a curious statement, and I have been thinking about it's delicious implications, in a good-Karma-glass-half-full kind of way. I've decided to embrace, with abandon, a big, juicy, life-affirming YES. The kind of giddy yes that makes you happy to be alive and well on planet earth. And why not? A "yes" is there, waiting, just for the taking, ready to be relished.
I thank you God for this most amazing day,
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything which is natural,
which is infinite, which is YES.
e. e. cummings
