23 February 2015

That’s what happens in our hearts. The holes do not disappear, but scar tissue grows and becomes part of who we are. The same takes place in nature. As the famous Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi observed, 'There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature.' The most stable structures in nature— like trees or spiderwebs— have angular and curved lines. As our hearts grow larger, and we learn that scar tissue is not so ugly after all, we accommodate what we had thought would be unendurable. And we realize that the wisdom we have gained would not have been possible without the losses we have known, even those that seemed impossible to bear.   [Daniel Gottlieb, The Wisdom We're Born with: Restoring Our Faith in Ourselves]

Just the other day it dawned on me that I’d NOT found my word for 2015. I suppose this is largely due to NOT having looked ahead; my usual reflective Time in December and January were taken up with BEing in each moment caring for Mum.

I don’t think of Time the same way Now. Still, somewhere deeper inside of me I was considering and BEing thoughty.

Resilience came knocking the other day. I recognised it straightaway as my point, my purpose, mayBE even my intent for 2015.

I am listening. Deeply.

I love you, Currie
