what i'm learning:


it is on those days that i am most happy--most alight with the strange elixir that is this life--on those days when i feel full and round and whole that i am most likely to feel a sadness so low and deep that i wonder if it even belongs to me--if it ever did. it's usually a look between strangers, or the gentle brush of a man's hand against his lapel that brings it on. it's always something small. or rather, it seems small. unimportant. but it is a moment of humanity. of seeing someone's humanity. which is really divinity, isn't it? and the sadness washes over me. mixes with the happiness and i know that the two things are of the same source. that they exist in tandem. not one without the other. and this seems just as it should be. and i feel so... i feel...

i just feel.

Beautifully said. Reading your words reminded me of one of my favorite quotes - "The little things? The little moments? They aren't little." (John Kabat-Zinn)It always seems like those "little things" are what trigger so much for me.

This is beautiful, as always.

Reading this reminded me of an essay I read last year- http://www.npr.org/blogs/13.7/2011/11/22/142645717/the-mystery-i-m-thankful-for?print=1

I'm not an atheist, but his words struck a chord in me. I love this- "All around us we see exquisite and exquisitely subtle orders played out effortlessly." Love.

Your writing is beautiful!
Emotions do define us as humans and we do ‘feel’ when we have emotions! Have a great weekend Ms. Lovely Meg!
