Shades of darkness, degrees of time

A weeping wind splits night from day
Then I rise and walk away.
And we are now one,
Forever

To give in often robs us of our very existence

Bouquet Flowers Bride Wedding Catholic

I’m sitting here looking at pictures of bridal bouquets and trying to decide about the wording of wedding announcements.

Knowing that you hurt triggers something primeval and cataclysmic deep inside me. I am nearly always at a loss. Yet every living cell, every gathering breath that I draw in, quickly conspire with my brain to shut down every other objective and accomplishment.
