    Blackbird singing in the dead of night. Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise. – Beatles

    “We’re all stumbling heavenward, and we’re flying like a crippled bird. Yet we know, as we go, there’s a shining light, guiding as we seek our way back home.” – I don’t know

    Sometimes, I think it may be true, that even before we get back up, we have to know that getting back up is not the measure of our lives, that “up” is not the only way to live. Stuck, down, hopeless, stumbling, crippled,… they are what they are; not, perhaps, what we are. Maybe home is where the heart is, not just where the heart want to go.

    My mantra, my sense of pride when I was younger, was not that I never got knocked down, but that I never stayed down. Defeat was always temporary.
