Strange how this works
Rather than seeking love
With another person
Discover it deep inside
Fall into that deep place
With who you are
Much of my grown-up Life, I’ve been “out of love” and enduring it. NOT gracefully, either. This is NOT something that fills me with pride, nor is it something I really like to admit “out loud” and in public. But there you go. Truth spoken, written, published, and sent out there…
Recently, I have been blessed to have both a front-row seat AND a backstage pass to the growing “in-love-ness” of several people I cherish. It’s NOT in person, but it’s almost deeper than that. Perhaps only BEcause I see it thus, but therein lies its magic.
Watching, reading, listening, and most of all interpreting this experience is like looking in the most magical of looking-glasses. In that reflection I have seen myself, “in love” and “falling” there… numerous times.
For my part, I’ve never “stuck” where I’ve fallen. Or mayBE it’s truer to say that those I fell in love with didn’t stick. Which or whatever, I Now live without that fallen-in-love thing going on. Happily. Peacefully. And gently.
I am grateful for this simply BEcause it lets me fall in love with ME. Every day…
I love you, Currie
