Life is a roller coaster

We are trying to stay calm, be patient, wait, plan but not plan, let it be. This is hard.

We would like to be definite, responsible, predictable, and especially to make plans–even just one month ahead. However, all of our plans are in other people’s control.  Each day we wait for answers about the visas, and each day, the silence is deafening. We are living in limbo, living on a roller coaster.

Let it be (by Paul McCartney of course).

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be. Yeah
There will be an answer, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

It’s funny. This photo perfectly captures the range of our emotions over the past month.
