even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.

but there is also compassion in heartfelt empathy.

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.

we begin to feel the life around us again,

our loss, our secret hopes our love -
everything that moves us most deeply.

keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.

and you dont make others dependent on you.

it is also remembering to take out the trash.
