If you have endured a great despair,
then, you did it alone;
getting a transfusion from the fire,
picking the scabs off your heart,
then wringing it out like a sock.
Anne Sexton – from Courage
I don’t know if there is a God. I remain on the sidelines, not deciding whether there is or isn’t. One of the things I do believe in is love. Love is a power that we are given. It transcends space and time. It is one of the only things I am certain of in this very uncertain world.
