Life's simple nourishment
I realized how I had sacrificed my own life. I saw how I had been suffocating, even while life's most simple nourishment waited at the door of every moment. How did I not know? Withering away while life offered up herself with such generosity
Then tears of ecstasy ran down my cheeks, Like a baby, my whole body awakened, as I surrendered in the overwhelming delight of life breathing life back into me again.
“Listen—are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?” —Mary Oliver
