Life is incredible.
What an awesome universe we live in. Butterflies - which seem so fragile and ephemeral actually migrate thousands of miles each year. They start out as fuzzy worms and quietly transform into these amazing fluttery beings. It's pretty incredible. Life is pretty darned awesome. I think I'll leave it at that tonight and add a poem.
Cry against the dark night of shining tearsWhose source you do not knowJoy and sorrowBlending in rivers of no source, no endThe restless stillness of life's passingCry against the dark night of dreamless sleepAnd sleepless dreamsAll levels blending into something elseCan rainbow colors see themselves orknow their hues?Where is the light I seek (too bright to bear)The light whose music sings a soul to joyUnlocks some caged and cowering power withinThe light that is my soul and moreThe light toward which I am perpetually turning,Turning,And turning too awayMy blindness frightened at the prospect ofsuch visionCry against the dark pain of all this lonelinessOur frail forms groping forth and falling backAlmost, but not quite, touching on the hand of GodAlmost, but not quite, hearing the voice withinCry for the unanswered prayersThe ones we do not know we makeWhich the Universe, therefore, cannot answerCry for what we think we seekMistaking our own shadows for the face of GodCry for the dark night of shining tearsFor that imperfect strife which is mortalityCry for the vision that remains unseen and out of reachWithin us.Katherine E. Rabenau
Some things I'm grateful for today:
