When Darkness Restores

A   L   O   H   A !
Don't confuse
with worrying
about problems
you DON'T have. 
Biggest waste of Life
there is.

" Everything you say
Does something;
Everything you do
 Says something. "

Troy Dunn

" The trick is not 
how much pain you feel - 
but how much joy 
you feel. 
Any idiot can feel pain. 

Life is full of excuses 
to feel pain, 
 not to live, 
excuses, excuses, excuses. "

Erica Jong

“For darkness restores 
what light 
cannot repair.”

Joseph Brodsky


Develop Comfort
with discomfort.
Don't run, regret, retrench.
Dare just to
Be with,
to notice discomfort.
Allow an Angel to arise.
Be the space
for a process to 
transform discomfort
into what it needs
to be.

Thank You
for joining Us!

Nice reminder. I am all too often guilty of crossing bridges in my head - before I am sure there is a river.

Joy is sometimes hidden but if you look you will find.

I like that Jong quote. I need to do better at that.

Twirling joy in the sky! Finding joy is a blast! I'm just learning how joy can be almost a good kind of paralyzing. Sure beats hanging out with pain. DrumMajor

Aloha Cloudia, your own closing comment is the best of all! The park scene, with the amazing deep flowers against the sky and velvet grass, is just dreamy!
