    Such is life I guess! I always say that if life were always so simple what would be the point in living?

    Have you ever noticed how boring a completely flat plain is? Not a hint of a rise or a dip for as far as the eye can see! Imagine how boring that image is! In life if we don’t have a down we can’t have an up and the very fact that we have both means that our lives are interesting!

    Cool post and nice blog Marya!
