Precisely How I…

Precisely How I Feel Today…..

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
―Fyodor Dostoevsky

I woke up this morning thinking I could handle a battle which lays before me, only to remind myself that I am in mourning and it’s ok to admit that. It’s only been a week and I need to give myself time, because I’m too raw to be allowed to jump into the Dead Sea. So tomorrow I handle the battle, but I will give myself the weekend to contemplate and begin working on the healing process. I also promise to call in reinforcements as needed, because right now I don’t think I can solve a crossword puzzle, leave alone my own life.

Close In Spirit…

Close In Spirit

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
