Carry On

Above all, I will remember the discussions of Kundera; admonition on the difference between understanding feminism and being pc; the contrast of stillness to a sharp awakening; the quest to put admirable lessons into the memories of our muses.

And at my end, the hope for pews full of know-ers who have spent time and words with my head and heart over the many years, will bring no one comfort.

I will remember to never settle for less than a knee-weakening kiss.

I will remember the the awareness of how little I knew, once.

And I walk on, committed to authentic living, without causing needless pain.

.

It is a false prize to keep count the notches- unless we call them lovers and they see themselves as such.

    There is no doubt you will carry on. You will do what needs to be done. Your head held high. And your heart intact.

      Head and heart are stronger for having loved, even if only once, than never having loved at all. It’s this care taking of our most vulnerable selves which yields growth, and sometimes, when we stretch others feel those growing pains in very.different.ways. Happy Holidays to you, XO-Ret

    Well done. The “false prize” line was perfect.

    “I will remember the awareness of how little I knew, once”. Sometimes I’m ashamed of how little I knew and how much more I have to realize.

      There is no shame in the not knowing…unless one closes off the opportunity to acquire it, to minimally make the time to reflect and assess…

    The awareness of how little we know… very Socratic! And excellent thoughts on the cusp of a New Year. Best wishes to you, Ret.

    Walk on and meet me for that glass of champagne — when all is done and told. XO
