“What binds a fabric together when the raging, shifting winds of change keep ripping away?!” Alluding to RENT again, Anna? This line is genius, Jonathan Larson! What does bind something together when it’s getting pulled from all different directions by different sources? It’s hard to say.
Sometimes it takes deliberate action on one side to achieve some kind of peace, something to keep those seams from coming apart so quickly. Other times we wait for that someone, anyone, to take that action and we sit and hope that the seams will hold on just long enough so we won’t have to do any mending ourselves.
It’s hard work to keep relationships from busting at the same place where pieces were sewn so strongly together that they appeared seamless before. Nothing like time and growth to provide wear and tear.
Sometimes a simple thing like familiarity can help us achieve a return to seamlessness. A familiar face, for example, can provide a return to a past lifetime when things weren’t so confusing and uncertain. Jhoette’s home for 2 weeks (1 week left actually) and in light of so many things that are going on around me, he’s just an absolute breath of fresh air. I love that guy!
WELCOME HOME, JHOETTE!
