life is messy. trust the mess and the not knowing... this is the real part. the most interesting part.
now i carry with me every fresh new start, and every final drive away. i dont carry the worry of your departure. i dont carry your number any more or your schedule in my mind. i carry the desire to go unnoticed at the same time not to be forgotten.
i carry the laughter. ...... i carry the dream of you before i knew you and into the days to come. i want to believe there is a bigger plan and a need that is above me for my life. a way that i can trust my deicisions and the way it seems to go.
she quotes may sarton "immitate the trees" let go. cut off excess. prune. wait. watch. grow deep.
in the SWH journal... 6 years ago i wrote "today i carry- a longing to let go + not be scared of the facts"
sabrina said "i dont know if i will ever understand this ache, perhaps it is simply + completely love and what happens at the end."
listening to "keep breathing" by ingrid michaelson...such a beautiful song.
The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths to it are not found but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
We know finite disappointment, but we know infinite hope.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
