The Dag Hammarskjold letters part two

Dear Dag Hammarskjold,

As I recently mentioned, everyday I walk to work through a little plaza that prominently features one of your most illustrious quotes:

“We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny, but what we put into it is ours.”

As you have recommended I have been spending a lot of time lately carefully placing things into the frame of my destiny, trying to make sure it's not too cluttered and that nothing sticks out. Unfortunately I think there's something, I don't know, off about it. Something is not quite right no matter what I try. I understand now that it is not possible to change the frame of my destiny, but do you know if there's any way to adjust the size?

Thanks for your help with all this.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
