Walking away is not an option... dialogue must prevail.

"A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is he is disagreeing with."
- Kenneth A. Wells

"I do not want the peace that passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace."

uncertain...

Life.

Endings.

New beginnings and rebirth.


There comes a time when we decide to let go.


I walked away from a situation at the urging of a beloved friend. And now, I feel like a little girl in pigtails, holding tight to a spool. Eyes squinting. Trying to see the beloved kite flying further and further away. Hoping the delicate ties that link her to her kite don't snap.

As you can tell by the commenting splurge, I've obviously been behind.

It is gorgeous. Just like you darling. I love you too, even if I'm not around as often as I used to be.
