A reminder from my dad (and Socrates)…

Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs; therefore avoid undue elation in prosperity, or undue depression in adversity. ~ Socrates

This seems to be a key lesson for me these days, not getting attached to what feels great, and not getting fatalistic about what feels bad. And to aid me in that endeavor, today I looked at pictures of cosmic wonders, pictures from the Hubble Telescope. They reminded me that there are so many things I don’t know and don’t understand, and I can just sit back in awe.
