A Time to Change...

3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
- From the Bible, Ecclesiastes III (King James Version)

Our lives are made by a continuing series of changes. Sometimes subtle, sometimes abrupt. Sometimes we take upon ourselves to change voluntarily, other times change is forced upon us by some event or by the will of another. Sometimes we change for the better but sometimes we change for the worse. However they are all changes, and we must deal with them to the best of our ability... Either we learn to accept change or we wither away. We may weep for what was but we must long for the future for that is what we can change.

I chose to be bold and face change head on. It may break me in the end but then again it may well not. I've decided to accept change and make a new beginning. Where this road will take me I know not but I do know that a great new adventure lies before me, and all I need to do is walk that path. Onto the undiscovered country!

"I believe that when we leave a place a part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in these halls, when it is quiet and just listen. After a while you will hear the echoes of all of our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone, our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit that the part of me that going will very much miss the part of you that is staying."

"Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future .. and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future .. or others will do it for us. It showed us that we have care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope .. that there can always be new beginnings .. even for people like us."

We all change, sometime...
