1. I’ve been trying to find a good quote on patience that doesn’t make me want to scream. The closest I could find was these lyrics.

    "When I find myself in times of trouble
    Mother Mary comes to me
    Speaking words of wisdom, let it be”

     

  2. "Who can save a child from a burning house without taking the risk of being hurt by the flames? Who can listen to a story of loneliness and despair without taking the risk of experiencing similar pains in their own heart and even losing their precious peace of mind? In short, ‘Who can take away suffering without entering it?’"
     

  3. On Death and Ashes - a revisit of grief

    Grief is a raw, terrible thing, 

    watching yourself laugh in each distinct memory, 
    knowing how happy you were and how that experience is now never again a possibility. 
    Each tear, a spade full of dirt separating us from one another. 
    Each sigh, the exhalation of death. 
    I beat my breast in hopes to hear the familiar pulse, but it is gone. Your eyes hollow, fires put out. Even your hand feels cold.
    I don’t know if I want to believe in resurrection. This dullness is too much to bear. Or, perhaps I’m seeing you now for the first time.
    Was I a fool for letting you sweep out corners, rearrange furniture, and change the lights? 
    Was that what stopped your beating heart?
    You said I was a windchime. Well, my wind has gone. The window closed. 
    I don’t know if I’ll open it again.
     

  4. This is perhaps my favorite song of this album.
