It’s amazing how far the heart can stretch in the course of a week. It’s more amazing how the heart can feel both tremendous love and ache at the same time. It’s been a joyful yet difficult week emotionally. A fluttering heart has been present, but also remembering the death of my sister Joy, and the news of a best friend’s young son having cancer. To feel all of those so richly and fully a the same time is a wild experience, and it’s amazing how much capaity the heart has to feel such intense emotions at the same time, and from opposite sides of the spectrum. But I want to feel it fully, I want to let the experiences hit me and let them affect me. Good feelings or bad, I continue to find more value in sitting quietly with my feelings. And to sometimes stand loudly with them.
Fuel more Sunrises
There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
