Change happens. I’m not too good with change. I like comfort. And stability. But life has its own ideas, sometimes, and when it throws something in your lap, there are times when you just have to go with it. That’s what has happened to me. I wasn’t looking for it. Didn’t ask for it. It just happened and I had to go with it.
Gourdo is on a lily pad. He is referring to the lily pad from whence he just moved. The cartoon is based on something Clinton Kelly said a few years back on his TV show – “It’s not about jumping from pond to pond, it’s about jumping from lily pad to lily pad”
When you jump to a new lily pad, you don’t know how long you will be there. You think it is something that will be around awhile but ends abruptly. Or, you think it is going to be a short stay and you wake up five (or ten or twenty) years later. That’s why I left the current lily pad open-ended. You just don’t know.
And as much as I hate it sometimes, it is better that way.
