There’s Blue Up There

“Shining through tears, like April suns in showers, that labour to overcome the cloud that loads 'em. “ – Thomas Otway

“The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God shine through.” – Edna St. Vincent Millay

Life is a mix of clarity and ambiguity. To live an authentic life, we find the wherewithal to cast light amidst, because and despite the clouds. The blue pulls us through, wakes us up and forces patience and faith to do their work in their time, not ours.

The assumption and expectation that life should be easy leads us down paths that spiral into nowhere, to nothingness. We have what we need within us to thrive in the good times and survive the tough times. Sometimes surviving is enough. Thriving waits in the wings to show itself when the time is right, when we’re ready.
