cycles of experience
Thalia sighed. “She’s gone and done it again.”
“She has,” Urania confirmed.
“At least she’s aware this time?” Cal grinned. “And is thinking through a repair strategy… that involves honesty, kindness, and communication — not evasion?”
“Yes.” said Thalia. “Now let’s get that paddleboard in truck!”
Words from Typist:
In Barbara Kingsolver’s poem How to Cure Sweet Potatoes, she describes it as “… all the times you wanted to be starchy but were made to be sweet.”
I have once again found myself in a relationship where I am an empty glass — my conversant a pitcher pouring their words and thoughts into me without volleying the ball back over the net.
Now that I am aware of the pattern, it’s time I speak up about my perceptions and feelings… See what comes of it, eh?
It’s not that life is one damn thing after another — it’s one damn thing over and over.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
