Henry Miller on life

Waking up to a morning overcast with rain. The greyness is typical of this city in these months. Even before coffee, there is a need for words. Some words that can invoke the morning. For today, it is Henry Miller’s words on ‘a well lived life’ that almost reads like a dare –

“If you can fall in love again and again… if you can forgive as well as forget, if you can keep from growing sour, surly, bitter and cynical… you’ve got it half licked.”
