What We Are Made of is Unbreakable
Now this is surely an ironic quote to connect with, given this girl has the spine of a dried flower in a stampede of wildebeest.
And yet - I am not broken Not broken by the milk or the surgery or the loss. Ok, deflated, agonized, irritated, depressed, angry, upset and crabby - but not broken.

Boy ain't that the truth. I have been reading a lot of Nepo of late. He seemed like the right author to follow along in the woods while I photographed and thought of nothing at everything all at once. (Thanks for the suggestion on that Jen.) At the end of anguish and pain there is grace that I do not think we have any other path to. It is what really links us all together is the art of having survived and come out the other side to appreciate life even more.

Carl, I cannot imagine the splendor of reading Nepo in the woods! And "nothing and everything all at once" - beautiful. You are SO right (and sounding very Nepo-like) about anguish often being the only path to grace, and the glue that links us all. :)

Have to get back to Nepo, although I find him sometimes hard to understand. "Unbreakable" that is a hard question.Wish it was true! It is really sad when someone does "break"! The loss is sometimes insurmountable! There are times when I question how/why I am still here!

Carol! Nepo makes sense to me when I am wrestling with emotions or life events...but not on other days. It's like my heart has to be wide open to "hear" him.
