Looking into the universe

February 4, 2011

If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life,
your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.
-Rabindranath Tagore

It’s been one of those weeks during which the duality of life was crystal clear.
The shocking loss of an old friend. The grief-stricken tears of another.
The warm embrace of people I love.

Understanding the meaning of loss,
while joyfully loving and looking toward the universe,
where the wonders of life await us in the next hour,
the next day, the next year.

The stars are always there.
