The beauty of brokenness

Finding the door

At the woodland gate

I can wait all day

"The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door." - Clarissa Pinkola Estés (Women Who Run With the Wolves)

"Real beauty is so deep you have to move into darkness to understand it."  - Barry Lopez (Artic Dreams)
