Ever waited by the phone for someone to call? Frustrating plight. You have the device and it works perfectly but no matter how many times you turn it on to check the call log, charge the battery or adjust the ringer you can’t make the other person call. Sheesh!

Life has ways of making sure we know how little control we have over so many things. There seems to be joy in the universe when humankind once again understands it’s true stature and rank. The wind blows, the clouds  dance across the sky, the ocean waves never cease, the Earth spins on its orbit and the universe keeps expanding while all we can do is watch and embrace our smallness.

I wonder if we ever stop learning the lesson of powerlessness or if we just keep forgetting and relearning.
