love, in a very cold climate

serendipitous and chance events arrive
because they're intended to

and most especially they arrive because
there's some sort of necessity
about life being filled
with unlikely possibilities


i came across a sweet story that i'd love for you to read and look at.

it's by 23 year-old isabel greenberg.

i sure like this story.

This has been on my mind too, our fate, our choices, how we choose every moment. We create our life. And sometimes impossible things converge.

ruth - i didn't really consider it as part of my life until the last few years when life itself became that much more precious as something that i have to not only use with care but treat with care and purpose. with my eyes opened very wide!!!! steven

Talk about serendipity! I just posted about destiny. Must be in the air today.

Yes Steven your eyes are wide open, but also you consciously see. Some people have open eyes but don't bother to look. This is one of the many reasons I love you so dearly.

i'm not sure about intention or if it all unwinds in a terribly beautiful pattern no matter what, but what i do know and agree on is its preciousness. every moment is possibility. can you imagine that? i try to understand this sentence and know that i am on into the next moment, again, this new one filled with endless possibility. holy holy!

i read it steven. it is wonderful. and so it will be in its way, our merging into the whole once again. thinking of this, thinking of it in this way and all the other gentle ways i've been thinking on death, i think and hope that i can maintain this gentle feeling/belief/knowledge (it evolves) and pass through this life experiencing all of the ALL OF THE all of the - (it is not just beauty, is it?) and then pass gently from it. rather than fearing death, this causes great peace.
