I wrote a post and hurled it up “on time” – my self-imposed deadline,
then took it down again for the love of you and I
and the scurry of words which needed a good bit longer to marinate.
Felt like I was forcing them through a sieve instead of letting them be
what they wanted to become.
So I’ve got lots of space here
So interesting to sit with this discomfort.
Mercy – it’s what I tried to wrap words around.
Such an evocative word,
Mercy and forgiveness.
Since the words aren’t crisp yet, I’ll leave you with these brilliant ones:
“…we are always the ones
who need to be absolved,
taken back into our hearts.
I forgave myself for the fisherman’s words and behavior,
for taking on his ugliness and making it something I believed
to be true about myself.
His words had gotten on me and then in me,
and then I had hoarded them,
building evidence that I was right about being fundamentally wrong.”
– Anne Lamott
And I’ll share my first video (happy sigh)
on my fledgling youtube channel.
Come see, if you like.
