By Charles Towne

Think about it, without the holes, a fishnet wouldn’t be any good!

The stuff that goes to make up a life has a lot of holes in it, if it didn’t it wouldn’t be life!

The fabric of life is made of adventures, experiences, happenings.  There are tears, fears, pains, doubts, wonderings, and wanderings.  There is laughter, joy, should and should not’s. There are questions, answers, puzzles, quandaries, life and yes, even death.  There is bravery, cowardice, ups and downs, over and under, ups and downs, rights and wrongs, hopes, wishes, dreams and aspirations and exultations, pleasures, and let’s not forget the pleasures, excitements and loves.  There are embarrassments, missed opportunities, wins, losses, generosities, acceptances, rejections, goods, bad and indifferent.  There is sickness, healings and good health.  How about the here’s and there’s, the almost, and not quite, the hits and misses, friends and family, cloudy days and rain, followed by the sunshine.  There are endearments whispered in the night, shouts of joy, a lot of laughter, thrills, and joy, lots of joy.

These are the fabric of your life and mine.  How beautiful life is.  It is all a beautiful gift from God to form the tapestry of your life.  Live it, love it, enjoy it, and share it.  it is yours, today.

Live wholly,

Love fully,
Love God, and make a difference, today


Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adapted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy filled life.
