I'm somewhat out of practice, not having written anything for several days,and I still don't feel much like writing. But it's really important to me that I take just a few minutes to say something about all of the love I've been very fortunate to experience. When I look at my life and the ways I continue to screw it up I'm always amazed that there are people and animals who have loved and continue to love me.
I know that you're supposed to give love in order to receive love. I never feel that the love I've given is equal to the love I've received. I'm so blessed to be loved.
Things for me are hard right now. I have this raw and aching feeling of battling tides and winds without end. My body is tired. My soul is tireder. It's only the love I have for others and from others that keeps me going at times like this. Such love is not a trivial thing.
There's no way to sum it up with hearts and candy.
