Life can be like travelling along a road in mountainous terrain. When you are high up your view is spectacular. During the "low spots" it can seem to be sad and dull in comparison.
We must learn to gain pleasure from all parts of the journey. There is beauty in remembrance, in anticipation, and in the moment itself.
We must be prepared as we come around the curves to be surprised by a vista that we did not know was waiting there, and be ready to capture the beauty it brings us.
