the past few days I’ve spent organizing forthcoming projects, editing ideas and putting distance between myself and the things that do not add to the energy I can use. Knowing what you can use and knowing what is toxic and best kept away from you = balance. A friend told me to remember that you cannot take someone to themselves and that one must do that journey alone. The aspect that brings a tender smile of understanding to my face is that the people who are close to me in so far as our exchange of ideas – are people who are no stranger to intense loss and the resulting pain… but are not members of the bleeding hearts society either. Far from it. What I enjoy about our exchanges is that there is a sense of light and a sense of faith. Faith in one’s self. Faith in now. Faith in ‘impossibly’ enduring love.
