A Love Letter From My Fulfilling Life

a love worth dying for...

There can be a redemptive power of love; relationships can transform us. But without internalizing the good feelings about self, we will continue to need the presence of the Other for our happiness. Idealized fantasies about love (“No one else exists for me …”) stand in the way of individual growth.

Judy Koffler, Old Bear BnB

Only Once

All which, because it was
flame and song and granted us
joy, we thought we'd do, be, revisit,
turns out to have been what it was
that once, only; every invitation
did not begin
a series, a build-up: the marvelous
did happen in our lives, our stories
are not drab with its absence: but don't
expect to return for more. Whatever more
there will be will be
unique as those were unique. Try
to acknowledge the next
song in its body -- halo of flames as utterly
present, as now or never.
