“There are no shortcuts in life or in love. This pain must be felt. The alternative is much worse. It’s what makes us special, what makes us beautiful, what makes us worthy; the pain of how we love. But that pain is accompanied by something else, isn’t it? Hope. With your pain, there is hope. And that is where you are. Somewhere between agony and optimism and prayer. So you’re human. You’re alive. And that is what we have.”

  1. I can tell you this; I felt the pain. But had I not – I wouldn’t be able to feel this absolutely wonderful love that I am experiencing currently. Not only that – but I appreciate it all the more for being as special as it really is. So keep that hope. It is for a reason.

  2. Blindian: I miss you (and all of your crew too). I can’t wait to ring in the New Year w/ you guys…Homemade Shrimp Pad Thai anyone?

    Liz: I’m smiling b/c I can feel your smile in your words. You deserve the best and I hope you are demanding it (and I have no doubt that you’re also reciprocating).
