100 words - Changes

Viet vets described their war experiences as long periods of boredom interrupted by brief episodes of chaos and terror. A personís life can also be described as such. Iím going through a short period of big changes right now, a tsunami of adjustment if you will. Itís remarkable to see how much I resist change, even though I consider myself generally hungry for it. It seems to me that sameness is what we are most comfortable with, while change is what we most need. So despite all my reservations, Iím silently hoping that the wave will be followed by another.
