The great irony of existence

From an interview with Screenwriting coach Robert McKee:

"The great irony of existence is that what makes life worth living does not come from the rosy side. We would all rather be lotus eaters, but life will not allow it. The energy to live comes from the dark side. It comes from everything that makes us suffer. As we struggle against these negative powers, we're forced to live more deeply, more fully."

Last week Veena had a bone fracture in her right foot and since then has been near-immobile. I have been doing most of the house-hold chores and looking after her, Akku and Unni, in addition to the office work. July 4th excursion is cancelled even before getting finalized. India trip is in jeopardy. Butamazingly, I feel that this incident has made us live more richly. I have better appreciation of what it takes to raise two kids and run the house-hold. Not very convenient or comfortable, but comforting nonetheless!
