Heal

HEALING MAY NOT BE SO MUCH ABOUT GETTING BETTER, AS ABOUT LETTING GO OF EVERYTHING THAT ISN'T YOU - ALL OF THE EXPECTATIONS, ALL OF THE BELIEFS - AND BECOMING WHO YOU ARE. -- RACHEL NAOMI REMEN

Water

"Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs."

Still

"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” –Franz Kafka

Yourself


LOVE AFTER LOVE

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

Old

"The beautiful thing about vintage and perfectly rustic pieces is that the chipped paint, tiny dents, and worn places all hold the secrets and stories of another lifetime . . ."
