Earthly State

Sickness is a sort of early old age; it teaches us a diffidence in our earthly state.

Alexander Pope

We aren’t invincible on this earth and the Good Lord has many reminders for us. Death, illness, the need to maintain ourselves regularly in order to function. We are human. We do need a reminder once in a while that we have limitations. At the same time, we need daily reminders about how far we’ve come and that our present moment is valuable. I love my life, I want to keep breathing, and I appreciate the amazing things (even with its limitations), that our bodies can do.

I find that leaning and swaying helps to keep us up right.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
