August 23rd, 2008



I haven't felt much like writing this week, too much happening at once and feeling very bombarded by lots of things. First week back at work after vacation went well, but I have some friends going through some really hard stuff right now and my heart goes out to them. I wish there was something I could do to help them get through to the other side of suffering and grief, but right now I just seem to be too far away from everyone and everything. Trying to find a peaceful place from which to send comforting energy, it helps to focus on images that evoke a sense of beauty and reflection.

There's no way around sorrow; the only way is through.
