A Quote and A Question
First the quote.
From The Reluctant Fundamentalist. I read it in less than 24 hours. Couldn't put it down. Friends who read and recommend good books are a gift from on high. (Truthfully, friends are a gift. That they read is a bonus!)
"Such journeys have convinced me
that it is not always possible
to restore one's boundaries
after they have been
blurred and made permeable by a relationship;
try as we might,
we cannot reconstitute ourselves
as the autonomous beings
we previously imagined ourselves to be."
Then the question.
From the cover of a book simply titled, The Dance.
Written by someone simply named Oriah Mountain Dreamer.
(I love her name!)
"What if the question is not
'Why am i so infrequently the person i really want to be?'
'why do i so infrequently want to be the person i really am?'"
Here's to blurred and permeable boundaries,
reading friends - and friends who read me,
releasing the autonomous beings we imagined ourselves to be,
and embracing the beings that we are!
