Love

Language has changed a lot since 1611. The King James version of the bible is my favorite because of its poetry and grandeur, but it’s important to know that what was translated as “charity” 410 years ago would be translated as “love” today.  1 Corinthians 13: Though I speak with the tongues of men and …

That’s the deal.

“It seems to me, that if we love, we grieve. That’s the deal. That’s the pact. Grief and love are forever intertwined. Grief is the terrible reminder of the depths of our love and, like love, grief is non-negotiable.”  ~Nick Cave

You Can Call It Optimism.

“I would say, that I am applying the ‘butterfly wing’ theory to my everyday life. It’s a kind of moral dictum, moral responsibility to keep in mind that whatever I do this second affects what the next second will be. So I try not to do anything negative, which is my best insurance that the …
