Having loved enough and lost enough,
I’m no longer searching
no longer trying to make sense of pain
but trying to be a soft and sturdy home
in which real things can land.
These are the irritations that rub into a pearl.*
~ Mark Nepo
Beyond searching is opening and acceptance of life and it’s irritations. There is hidden treasure there.
