My love goes out to those in Manchester tonight and all those facing hardships on this Earth. It can be a strange paradox attempting to love this world when such tragedies strike, and they do, every day. Yet, we get up every morning and hope for a better one. Our true strengths as humans lies in our tenacity to keep moving, and to keep loving despite the darkness. ❤️🦋 .
I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wondering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty bats and shines not in its imperfections but overwhelmingly in spite of them... - Annie Dillard
