From The Wandering Hearth

Why do we assume that dawn is always a comforting thing? Sometimes when you open up your palm and force the things you've been clinging to so tightly for security into the full light of day, they sit there smoking and blinking madly back up at you, and suddenly...they don't seem so helpful after all. Sometimes the light is harsh, illuminating all the dark corners in truth and sometimes, that isn't such an attractive or comforting thing.

No baby girl, Light can be incredibly cruel, though so few comment on such things...

the good old boys have always managed to turn the most elementary things into such grandiosities, and then we get there only to find out, well, that it was all an illusion..

still, there is something beyind..and love is one of those somethings.....far beyond what we believe.

love to you..

(forgive typos.....having a glass of wine
decided to join Li Po....

trying now to embrace the moon in the yellow river.

Song! I've missed you. I've checked that Eco Friendly Pizza Box post dozens of times.

I think of you often and hope you are doing well - as well as can be expected in this climate.

Stop by to visit anytime. And, Wine is good!
