This post has reminded me of a Hafiz poem I love to remember and love to share...

Don't surrender your loneliness
So quickly.
Let it cut more deep.

Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can.

Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice
So tender,

My need of God
Absolutely
Clear.

living your life one small thing, one small moment at a time is the best.

It makes everything more meaningful.

connections deeper.

"and always, always passes."

tears are falling from my eyes & i cannot place them entirely. they fall from a composition that includes joe purdy, your words, your grasp on essentials, your thirst for beauty (& my own too), the font, & my own sadness.

i long to meet you.

thank you.

What a great list!!

When I get sad, I blast 80's rock music (I truly believe in the "secret mental health of hair bands")...I pull out harry potter...I eat icecream...I take mid-afternoon naps...I read delightful things on other's lovely blogs :)

Jasmine said...

Beautiful written! I always do the same with my beloved books, just change coffee and tea :)

Connie. said...

I love your writing so much, it always strikes a chord.. At the moment, I'm looking into getting a tattoo of a quote from a poem or story that I feel sums up what I want the world to know about me. I always read your posts because I'm convinced one day you'll have written something so compelling and true that it will blow the current shortlist out of the water.

Mary Grace said...

You have heard this more than a million times but god, your writing is so beautiful. I love it.

R. Grace said...

Music always helps me. My favorite is when I turn on the radio and the perfect song is just coming on :)

Rachael said...

I just LOVE all your posts. Seriously. All of them could be printed out and hung up as art. Sometimes they'd be inspirational posters, sometimes they'd be the poem that cuts so deep, sometimes they'd be beautiful photography....

Abi said...

This came to me in the right moment, to remind me that everything passes, no matter what. We don't have to let sadness win!
