Let me sit for a while and think and feel and wonder.
Not the wonder of discontent but the wonder of life.
I don’t know if it is age, or the times, or all the loss, but sometimes I feel like my heart is going to explode.
It’s curious because there’s the pain of course, but it mostly feels like too much love.
I mean, can your heart explode from too much love?
Maybe that’s what hearbreak is: your heart has to break in order to expand to inlude all the love.
If it’s age – that would make sense. As I have gotten older, I have become more sentimental more connected.
If it’s the times – I have had to surrender to all that I can’t control.
If it’s all the loss – I found more love in the ashes of grief, I have found more compassion in the unfulfilled.
