              Mirror Reflections
Like fallen leaves from an old oak tree our lives swirl and tumble over the years
from  that proverbial never ending, cold north wind.
Changing only slightly each and every day, but nevertheless, changing our looks,
our minds and our destiny, until the face in the mirror is totally different than that of yesterday.
Life is a series of events that we seldom have any decisive control over, therefore, like snowflakes,
no two lives are exactly the same.
Unseen events rule over good intentions and best laid plans, leaving our lives up to unpredictable chance.
But, with all that said, good or bad, it still beats the alternative…
death at hand!
