Marvels and wonders aren't happiness
Although they make life look easier.
Right now we hear hard-times laugh at us;
Rough edges, though, can smooth the surface...
Invariance would be wonderful,
And yet, from what we've learned, should it change?
Givingly we bear the growing pains;
Enduring well will make us stronger.

- Ash,
Fall 1993
