Sometimes there just isn't any way
to avoid ruffled feathers.
We can't control the wind
when it blows, we can only choose
behaviors designed to keep us
from getting knocked off balance.
But then things calm down
and things go back to normal.
We're on top of things, full of confidence
and good cheer.
And if we're really lucky,
we'll have an abundance of moments when
we'll feel like jumping for joy.
