Never really arriving…..

00 00 CW 003 055

Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

    1. Hi Ben,

      Thanks for your fidelity and your comments. I have only gotten my computer back working this week and so was relying on what was stored in WordPress for my images, and on mobile devices etc for writing. And those images have been built up over years and unfortunatley I do not know where that one comes from. It is not one of my own, unfortunately.

      Best wishes,


  1. Timely for me too ~ my old way of life fell apart six weeks ago when i suffered an injury at work. Already new, more satisfying pathways are emerging. I would not have left that job of my own accord, the situation had to break down to give me the push that I needed! Now I’m excited by this new phase coming together before me. Thank you for posting 🙂

    1. Dear Jacqueline, I am glad if it was helpful. I just find the idea of life being a matter of things continually falling apart and coming together is kinder than some ideal state we think we should have achieved by now. Will post a little more on this this afternoon and tomorrow,

      Hope you are doing well,
