it wants what it wants

Darling Heart,

I read a proverb this morning and thought of you:

“A cheerful heart is good medicine,

but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

I love Hemingway’s take on this:

“The world breaks everyone,

and afterward,

some are strong at the broken places,”

One thing I never stopped to consider

is how the broken places become strong.

This proverb seems to hold the key:

The gold

that fills the cracks

and preserves the precious

flows from a grateful heart.

Leaving us stronger,


more beautiful

than before.
