(Shaped like a pot or jar)


Life


is worked


On a wheel


Sloppy, slippery


Formless base clay


Rising coaxed, caressed,


Coerced and beaten into shape


Tested in passion's consuming fire


Until worthy to catch and hold


A bit of the liquid grace


Pouring unceasingly over us. 


Tina B. Tessina, self-help author, therapist

So true are your words. We do have to go through a "learning" period before we are let loose upon the world. Thing is, it seems that the "learning" period has, of late, been very lackadaisical in preparing the young skulls full of mush to the realities of life.
