Yesterday clipped along at a staccato pace, and so today I am giving over to the quiet. Just this quick note, then: I was directed to a YouTube video of David Whyte yesterday by a little piece of synchronicity (see yesterday’s post)… and I jotted this down from a poem he uttered:
“You must learn one thing… The world was made to be free in. Sometimes, it takes the darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn that anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.”
I wish I could impart this message into the DNA of my boys.
