What we long for. (GBE2 99)

Hmmm... Longing.

The wanting of something that seems out of reach.

Our longings change.  When we are children, it is a toy we saw or a maybe a chocolate cake.

As teenagers it was that mysterious one of the opposite sex.  And for those who actually caught the prize, not knowing at all what to do with it.

As adults we long for wealth and power, even though we know deep inside it really isn't good for us.

And now as a older type person, longing for the success of our children and the love of the grandkids that may or may not have come.

Along the way we trade important things for our longings, only to find out we were better off if we hadn't.

But it doesn't matter.

In the end, when we find the ultimate freedom, we all are at the same place..
