Two people meet. The sky turns winter,
quells whatever they would say.
Then, a periphery glance into danger –
and an avalanche already on its way.
They have been honest all their lives;
careful, calm, never in haste;
they didn’t know what it is to meet.
Now they have met: the world is waste.
They find they are riding an avalanche
feeling at rest, all danger gone.
The present looks out of their eyes; they stand
calm and still on a speeding stone.”

“Love is the conversation between possible, searing disappointment and a profoundly imagined sense of arrival and fulfillment; how we shape that conversation is the touchstone of our ability to love in the real inhabited world.”

“What is love?”; “The total absence of fear,” said the Master; “What is it we fear?”; “Love,” said the Master.”

“Rise and shine. I’ve always held such fondness for that sweet old phrase. As though we are all little Suns. As though we are all someone’s Day.” –Beau Taplin
