Social Media Image—Contradictions

We are a people defined by contrast. We judge good by bad, abundance by lack, happy by sad. We can't even imagine one without the other—think I'm wrong? Try to picture a coin with only one side. Not possible, is it?

Often my most treasured times follow my most trying times. What about you?

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. - John Steinbeck

  1. Your post reminds me of the prayer of St. Francis in which he juxtaposes the negatives of this world with the positives that we can bring to it. Thoughtful post, Edie!

  2. It is difficult to remember the precious warmth when locked in the icy grip of a frigid winter. The good news is, eventually the memories of a sunshine filled sky jog the mind and winter is given the place it deserves; one season in four.

  3. Wow--powerful truth! And I've never really thought of it in those words. Beautiful, my friend.

  4. The need for opposites--quite a thought Edie. Thanks.
