Thankful, Day 12: Permission

I am thankful to have learned it’s okay to sit with a poem I don’t understand, and to let it sit with me—to allow words and images and glints of insight to wash over me, and take hold where they will, and work somewhere deep below the surface. Even if I never find the words to tell you what it means.

  1. Frankly, these "thankful a day" things overwhelm me because I can't even keep up with READING someone else's, let alone writing my own.

    But I love this one. So often I just feel something--experience it--and almost, *almost* get it, but just not quite. Love those moments.

    1. Shonya, I'm keeping them short for everybody's sake. And I love when people read, but I can't keep up with everything I want to read every day, either. I'm glad for when you're able to "drop by."


I love hearing from you!
