Being the same

Even when it's not as clear as you're used to, the sun is as bright as can be behind the clouds.

It's the same sun.

Even when it's not as clear as you're used to, love is as bright as can be behind fear and frustration.

It's the same love.


Today, be present and patient.

  1. Beth Fuller's beautiful photograph inspired me, but my thoughts were probably nowhere near her thoughts, so "the picture is not about that." (Pictures can be what people want them to be about, certainly.)

    I wrote this for myself, partly, because yesterday I was very emotional and tried not to inconvenience others with it. I knew I would recover. I thanked those who helped, and apologized for being quick to tears. Those kinds of days pass. The damage done by not being careful on those days can last a long time. So for my own comfort and edification, I came up with that analogy.

    I like that I used "edification" so near the Eiffel Tower. :-)

  3. I was having one of those days on the same exact day you were... I apologized to my kids, too. This part, "the damage done by not being careful on those days can last a long time", was so simple yet so profound. I can remember that. Thank you. :)
