Spiral of Life

Our morning view of SF’s Mission District – 2011

This morning we all got up just before 6:00am to head down to Shannon Airport to pick up our friend Julie who was coming to visit from San Francisco.

At this exact time, precisely one year ago today, it was just Mary and the girls headed to the airport to pick me up when I arrived in the country.

It’s like a perfect circle. Except that the second time around the circle it’s never exactly the same. More like a spiral. I like this metaphor, the way life circles around repeating itself in amazing ways with infinite variations. Hopefully each time we go around, we grow a little like those shells at the beach.
