Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by his heart, and his friends can only read the title.
DON`T LOOK BACK
“Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.”
~~ David Whyte ~~
I feel that you can only fully appreciate the impact of these few, simple words if you have gone through depression.
The soul is imprisoned within walls of impenetrable, air tight steel that grips and squeezes out every last drop of the air your lungs contain.
It`s tough to leave behind that which seemed safe, but to step out beyond the boundaries of self delusion and walk away from that, and those that seemed your haven through the storm and fury of life, is true freedom from despair and darkness.
Language and good literature are like fine wine upon the lips. I cannot imagine a life without the written word. It`s the music which keeps the orchestra in my head playing on an endless loop of pleasure. Give me a book to read, and I`m as happy as a French man who has invented a pair of self removing trousers.
