“Everything is possible.” is from Don Quixote which I just finished recently. The first time I saw it in the book I had to do a double take. I said to myself, I say that. But that’s not quite true. I would say, “Anything is possible.” For weeks now, off and on, I have been racking my brain trying to see the difference. Help me out, is there a difference?
The words may mean roughly the same but the feel of them is different to me. Maybe it is in the context of how and when I would use the “anything” phrase. I would use it like a Hail Mary pass is used in football, sort of a last resort.
“Everything is possible” has so much more meat on it’s bones. It is not tentative. Maybe I am connecting it with the Bible quote, “With God everything is possible.” I like the feel of the “everything” much better and I am going to retrain myself to switch over.
I hope that I am not boring you to death this morning but had get that one out of the way. And speaking of “everything”, little patches of blue are appearing in the sky. Things are brighting up for our walk in half an hour, how nice. Maybe some folks will show up. My two morning walks of the week are most times solitary for me on these winter days.
A couple of days ago I was writing about the “How about March 2nd?” quote of Annie’s. It has grabbed me like “Everything is possible.” Maybe starting March 2nd things will be totally different. Possible!
Hey, thanks for sticking with me. Have to jump up here and get my walking attire on. We will be out there searching for signs of spring. Come join us if you get a chance. It’s all possible loves, Felipe.
