I will be the first
I will be the first to comment here buacese I have an additional thought. The quote above is philosophical, I think, a musing about the layers of our life, but on a more practical level, my question is about tears. Does it matter how much and how often we cry? Is the lack of tears a sign of strength, or rather maybe a badge of weakness? Do we cry less in adulthood buacese it is simply less appropriate somehow? Do we cry less as parents buacese we are worried about sending a certain message to our progeny, or maybe buacese there are enough tears (the kind from little eyes) in our lives? All worth thinking about, I think Ooooh one more thought/question. Is it up to us to peel back the layers of our life or are these layers on some level shed automatically as we plow forward with existence?(Deep thoughts for 6:09am, huh? )
