this and that...

time is moving quickly. i have been in a funk since friday. between the constant up to the minute news of the conn. shootings and the depressing weather i am not feeling in the spirit. i have cried more in the past days than i have in a long time :(. but i have talked about this before and i know there is always the ebb and flow to life. i have been in a real upbeat place for a while and there is always the crash of reality... but this too shall pass,   maybe tomorrows hump day will be the turning point. christmas is in full swing and there are parties for the next 4 days so i am hoping that my spirits will lift. 
we are all walking around with our wounds and sometimes it takes something not even related to our wounds to rip them open. we are all guilty of judging, assuming, and projecting our own stuff onto others, but we are not all blessed enough to step back and take a second look at that. being a person that feels so deeply is hard, but oh so worth it.

this is the darkest week of the darkest season.  friday is the darkest day of the year.  and yet how much more pressing this new darkness feels, this darkness wrought of an incomprehensible act, this darkness from the heart of someone who was a fellow human being.  we are moving towards the solstice, and there is still so much here i do not understand.

We do know that no one gets wise enough to truly understand the heart of another, though it is the task of our lives to try.

– Louise Erdrich

wish i were here... i love, love this place.

love sent, xxoo
