man, you guys are amazing! i think we can all use a cheering squad to help us get throught the rough patches.
i feel so much better this morning. (after sleep, which is indeed one of the necessary aspects of dealing with adversity as someone so aptly wrote.) I could sleep for months.
this morning i faced some fears and now emerge triumphant.
what an amazing journey.
this town is incredible and full of life (complete with all the grittyness).
I can’t wait to write about the stories.
I want to repeat the quote written by Cam because I think it’s pefect for what I am experiencing. (thank you for this)
“We live on the edge of the miraculous every minute of our lives. The miracle is in us, and it blossoms forth the moment we lay ourselves open to it. The miracle of miracles is the stubbornness with which men refuse to open themselves up. Our whole life seems to be nothing more but a frantic effort to evade that which is constantly in our grasp.” ~Henry Miller
I am open.
I don’t think I have ever been this open before in my life.
I mean that.
(last night we contemplated sleeping in the car for a few weeks and I thought, “I could do that. And I would be okay.” i’ve come a long way from needing to control all of the little details.)
