Like Calls to Like

Sometimes I feel like a ship lost at sea . . .

Lost at Sea

but then I look up, and see the stars. I realize the immensity that I am part of. I know this, because I sense it, deep in my inner sea.

Like calls to like, and instead of feeling lost, the privilege of being alive sweeps over me.

Don’t try to “rescue” me. I want to be completely submerged in this magnificent mystery.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.
…….~ E.E. Cummings

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Wonderful in every way. Thank you.

  3. I love your last thought! It makes me think of the “willingness to tolerate discomfort for growth.” That pain that hurts so bad, it feels good. Or the bliss that feels so good, it hurts.

    Deb, Sandra, Paulann–you are proving my title is true! We are women who know how important it is to find our Selves.

I LOVE hearing from you!
