"Join me on my hunt for new ways to see beauty and to express feeling ... to keep life simple, to notice the little things and to love it all. "

Annie Edelman


I was always a sure bet ...

For a someone who didn't have much use for material things,
she certainly gave up a lot for a little security.
I'm sure she confused security with love
and I'm not sure if she ever did work out the difference.
If she did manage to figure it out, it was a lifetime too late for us.

...security can trap you in a place that love can't get to
but love will set you free,

I loved her,
but that just set her free from me.

...she was dearly loved by so many
but the love of many can't touch you till you can be touched by the love of yourself.


I know she loved me ... just not enough to gamble with ....
shame, I was always a sure bet!

I am so moved by this. Your thoughts about love are really insightful: "but the love of many can't touch you till you can be touched by the love of yourself"

Sometimes it doesn't matter how much people are loved, or even how much they love others. Sometimes people get eaten up by their demons.

It is not a reflection of your self worth. Sorry for rambling, I was just really moved by this.

'security can trap you in a place that love can't get to' ....

Guilty as charged! Lovely words and reminder.

A gentle reminder that sometimes we just have to take that leap, no matter how scary. Thanks, I need a prod every now and again!

I'm watching someone I love take this route and it's painful to observe and difficult not to intervene too much. But everyone has to walk their own path, don't they? Sad sometimes.

security is a trap. a trap so many fall into and never get out of.
