Quote of the day

180901tearsPeople often talk about trying to hold back their tears, but as human beings, we should take pride in our capacity to be sad and happy. We mustn’t ignore the preciousness of our human birth or take it for granted. It is extremely precious and very powerful. We cannot ignore our basic human endowment. –Chögyam Trungpa, from Ocean of Dharma

  1. I could not hold back my tears if I tried. I have filled an ocean, and still I cry.
    My beloved Molly Dog died on Thursday evening, my heart aches and every fibre of my being hurts.

    1. Sweet Emma,
      I have spent much time these last few months pondering how much my animals mean to me. They are my constant and faithful companions.

      I’m so sorry for you loss. They enrich our lives so profoundly, but it hurts that they have such short little lives compared to ours.
