A small stone

We took this photo in the mountains in Norway, last summer. It pretty much sums up what I am feeling right now. I can’t tell you why, just yet. I will probably tell you soon. But see the small stone, alone and yet not alone, amid the undulating hills of stone. See how the red flowers bloom on the rock. Take a deep breath. And see how if you looked up, or turned around, or walked on, the mountains would spread their arms around you, the clouds would part, the earth would press its face up to the sky.

  1. Oh, I’m very sorry for your sadness. I will not make assumptions about what it is. I simply hope that as you sit with it, you are able to sit with peace and that your sorrow won’t be overwhelming.
