A Beautiful Absence 2/18/2008

Tonight is Nathan’s and my first night apart in quite some time. When saying goodbye today I became overrun with emotion, which led to his minor breakdown--and there we were saying goodbye like we wouldn’t be seeing each other for a year. It’s amazing what absence and the idea of absence can do to the heart. Suddenly, moments aren’t just average old moments, but the pieces of our world. It’s a mysterious art to try and figure--how to live in the moment while never taking for granted the love in our life; how deep love truly is, and how without even noticing, we become one with another human being. God took no shortcuts while creating the human spirit. How good it feels to have moments apart to remind us how much we mean to each other and how connected we’ve become. This is beauty.


“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
