fantasy

Avoid the fantasizing that creates
fissures in your heart, that allows
false hope to slip in;
take root;
subjugate you to
actions more false than foul, more
ephemeral than concrete, more
lost than found

  1. Ufffhhhh…

    So beautifully poignant.

    This hits home.

    One of the hardest things to do is to embrace the possibility of a future with someone without wrapping that future up too prettily in the imaginings of what that future will look like.

    When we build our castles in the air, all too often the foundations are cracked.

    The most successful relationships I know are grown, not built.

    • I have never figured out the line between imagining too much (which is too much pressure) or imagining too little (which takes every tiny drawback and multiplies it into mountains insurmountable)

      But I guess that’s the act of living and learning–one day, most all of us, will get it right

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
