Philosophers have said that a life is a book, events and relationships but chapters. For many that may be true, but the plot of any book must follow a sequence, a series of events, one leading to the next. There may come a time where you want the narrative of your life to go a different direction. Sometimes it is best to close the book; pick up pen and parchment and take out a new book, an empty book, and open it to the first page. Set pen to paper and start anew.
