What a hero.
I suppose if there's a lesson there, it's that eventually, eventually, we need to leave the security, comfort and pleasure of indulgences, and get back into the uncertainty of the open seas.
Nah, that doesn't work for me, either. The few visits I've had to 'islands of delight' have been brief and not ended by my choice. More like the tropical paradise gets flattened by a hurricane. I've become pretty good at embracing uncertainty. I've had plenty of practice.
I recently read that we need intimate relationships to cultivate our souls. We bang into each other's rough, sharp edges until they gradually wear away. We appreciate and cultivate each other's strength, kindness, vulnerability and playfulness.
If you aren't invested in holding onto whatever gets in the way of that, let's talk. And I wouldn't mind feeding each other a grape or two while we're at it.
