Transitions

I follow @mikemonday on twitter. This morning he posted a blog on dealing with change: http://bit.ly/UAbExE

I also follow Seth Godin (@ThisIsSethsBlog). He wrote a post about the difference between anxiety and anticipation: http://bit.ly/11hRvzY

So, I guess I'm in good company. Today, in class, we talked about writing good transitions... how to move from one idea to the next seamlessly... I wish life transitions were as easily navigated as scene changes in a story. Someone once told me that change is hard because we are in-between stories... one is ending while another is beginning. I'm not sure that's completely true. The story of our lives is always unfolding in front of us.

Then, on my way home, I noticed that the City of Pasadena was already setting up for the Rose Parade:

Where there once was a nice green lawn, there are men building stadium seating to view the floats on New Years Morning. Maybe transitions are easier when they are built in like stair steps... Maybe I need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and not try to leap over everything at once. I can trust the path I'm on and if I don't like it, I have the volition to do something about it. Right?
