WIMBLEDON COMMON — Change is good. It is what you want when all else fails. It is the excitement of a new job. It is what we think that money buys.
Change is what we say we want when we’re unhappy. It can cure loneliness, boredom, stress, and, some say, cancer.
Change is a vacation. It’s hard work. It’s learning to catch with your left hand. It is like moving your desk into the hall, or living below ground, or on the top of the earth. It’s cold and hot and strange and new.
Change is something we fight against. And something we are desperate for.
We regret changes we didn’t make. And we bemoan change that we didn’t expect, or weren’t prepared for.
We want to change the past. And we feel we cannot change the future.
But change is good. Always.
Change is good.
