Who Knows What the Future Will Be? – Writing 101

Carol A. Hand

When I think about the future, I think of the world my grandchildren will inherit.

I’m reminded of Gibran’s words about children in The Prophet.

“ … their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.”

I pray it is a future of world peace, kindness, and abundance for all.

My future? There is only this moment as I complete this final Writing 101 assignment quickly before I continue the work outdoors that can’t wait. The killing frost predicted for the past three days hasn’t yet arrived, but it’s only a matter of time. I do have one more assignment to complete later, writing up the interviews I conducted with Trace Lara Hentz (Lara/Trace, THE MIX) and Skywalker Payne.

Long days working outside have left me little time or energy to do justice to the perspectives and insights shared by these inspirational friends. I do hope you will visit their blogs in the interim. I send my best wishes to all and hope you will forgive my delay answering comments or visiting your blogs for a few days.

About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

  3. That line from Gibran gives me shivers.

    I don’t have kids, and don’t plan to have any. But I love children, and when I look at the faces of my nephews and niece, I see the future. And I also hope that their world, reflected in their eyes, is a peaceful and kind one as well.

    • Thank you for your thoughtful and lovely comments, Cheri. I believe that your work helping others find and unlock their stories is part of building a foundation for a kinder, more peaceful future world for the sake of all children.
