The moral of the story is that life really is like a box of chocolates. We never know what we are going to get. That is what makes it so interesting to me. We are out here on this little blue ball with so much uncertainty clouding events in the short run. But, the long term events have a certain rhythm or pattern to them. Animal lovers in the northeast will rejoice that we are well past duck season. Rabbit season has come and gone. We are now firmly into proxy season.
