I've always been a big planner. Huge. I love plans. But sometimes, like right now, we don't know what is going to happen, and beyond doing our little parts (which add up to a not-so-little whole, mind you), the outcome (eventual and immediate) is out of our hands. I was encouraged by this passage in the book I just finished:
"What's the plan?" he asked.
"The plan?" said Benjamin. "What could be more boring than a plan? How can we plan when the outcome is unknown? How can we plan for the impossible, the outrageous, the unspeakable?"
Here's hoping that the outrageous, impossible, unspeakable outcome to our current situation is a stand-up-and-cheer-for-hours sort of surprise.
