the inexorable letting go . . .

winter still has a firm grasp on this part of the world . . .
but it's letting go . . . grudgingly . . .

the golden thread

i woke into this world filled with . . . well, a sort of general feeling of unhappiness . . . i've been here long enough to know that these days arrive, and yes, they go and if i'm lucky, i reattach my earthly self to the golden thread that's always available . . . the golden thread that upon very very close examination has words written on it . . . words like hope, trust, patience, beauty, goodness, forgiveness, care, kindness, and most especially beautifully written in a sweet looping script . . .
love . . . .
