Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
In an earlier post I wrote about a section in my journal titled The Dot Project. During a period of reflection I realized that most, if not all, of my journal writings would go away when I go away. While not exactly an epiphany I realized I wanted some of my writing preserved where they could be found and read by my family. Mostly memoir , the musings you’ll find here are short snippets of the dots in my life. They are the moments both big and small that I come to cherish as important points in life. The life significance of various dots in the past were never clear until now. But that’s how it goes.
