Currie's Gratitude 22 January 2015

Just the fact that you're even asking yourself the question pretty much proves you're qualified. Most people spend more time worrying about how to raise tomatoes than they do their own kids.  [from the film, Martian Child, 2007]

I’m immensely grateful for movies. Cycling through my favourites, old and newer-ish, thanks to Amazon and a gift card from my brother, is a deLIGHTfully delicious way to wind down BEfore sleep in this particular passage, and Let Go of my days more gently.

Last evening it was Martian Child. I’d forgotten how lovely the dialogue is, which made it especially sweet. It’s also a BEautimous love story in the sense that only Love can open us and make us surpass even the wildest imaginings we dream for ourselves. And others.

The highest function of love is that it makes the loved one a unique and irreplaceable being.   [Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume]

The expanse and edges of Love, and of its myriad tributaries, amaze me on a daily basis Now. I’ve held myself back from Love, which I don’t regret BEcause I have discovered the magic in loving myself. In loving my Life, as it is and as it is NOT.

Loving myself teaches me “better ways” to love other humans BEing human. Which is the work of Life, y’know?!

I love you, Currie
