I will be in Europe for the next two weeks, starting next week. In view of the upcoming trip, the following seems a rather appropriate reminder:

“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”

Alan Cohen

Seems strange how such quotes/incidents seem to pop up mysteriously at various junctures in my life. Serendipity? Hidden meaning somewhere? Or divine intervention, as some may say? This is also reminiscent of what a recently departed colleague had said about “smelling the cheese” (in reference to the book ‘Who moved my cheese’).
