“The risk of love is loss, and the price of loss is grief -
But the pain of grief
Is only a shadow
When compared with the pain
Of never risking love.”
-Hilary Stanton Zunin-

It's oh-so-true what they say about never having loved. I've loved a lot and lost a few but my memories are rich and wonderful ones. And the one I'm loving now, who loves me too, the sweetness of this is delicious.

I am enjoying the music as I type this.

RUTH said...

I'm glad you all liked it; it's a special one for me at the moment.

What a stunning photo - you are so clever and those quotes you find - wonderful

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
