A friend of mine has a collection of tops; the old kind that you spin with your hand or wind a string around and when you pull the string they spin like crazy.
Whenever I look see the tops I think about all the hands that have touched them and enjoyed them over the years. Some are really old and worn so you know they’ve done a lot of spinning.
Our lives are like that. Sometimes we spin like tops and it seems like we’ll never stop spinning. Other times we’re laying over to the side and wondering if we’ll ever get to spin again.
I’m all for balance and I’m all for rest, but to tell the truth, I’d rather be spinning…and the faster the better.
