Beyond Towels

In response to [Carpe Diem #1028 sadness], my take on sadness is grimmer than that of Khalil Gibran.  But not hopeless.  Many things that work best when dry can still work when damp.

(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)


|It is a liquid.
|It wets the soul and somehow
|never fully dries.

    1. I hope U find blogging and poetry helpful. We have some control over what happens, but much more control over how we write about it. That sense of control helped me thru my time as an Alzheimer’s caregiver.

      1. Poetry is immensely helpful … and also immensely painful. As Jane Reichhold shared with me … it’s a double-edged sword. But there’s a huge sense of fulfillment in writing tanka so I persevere 😉

        You have my utmost respect … being a caregiver is such a difficult position at times. Namaste

  1. yes, not hopeless…you capture splendidly the awareness arising from acknowledging that sadness is part of living in this world, so one is able to let go of trying to live a sad-free life and instead embrace it as all things of life are embraced.
