Heartbreak

‘If you’re really listening, if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of
the world, your heart breaks regularly. In fact, your heart is made to
break; its purpose is to burst open again and again so that it can hold
ever-more wonders.”
—Andrew Harvey, *The Return of the Mother*

Through all the hours of watching Japan’s tragedy unfold, I have found it so essential to stay close to the realization that only the most important things are truly important.  Love, family, friends, honesty, clean water, air, land and food.  Everything else tends to be an abstraction. I hope this finds you, the reader, closer to your own deep realizations, with the courage to stay true to them.  I hope this for all of humanity.
