Thought for the Day

. . . If lucky, love will distract us more than suffering.
If blessed, we are broken of everyone's plans and regrets
and thrown like a hooded bird into a sea of light.
If trusting the fall, we find our wings. . . .
~ Mark Nepo

Love his writings. I deliver to the Fetzer Institute in Kalamazoo and had the honor of meeting him a few times. A deep compassionate soul. Went to one of his poetry reading as well and wow...

The second and third lines really get to me.....it is a blessing to be "broken of everyone's plans and regrets/ and thrown...into a sea of light."

Nepo's poems are so reassuring, truly.
