“It seems to me, that if we love, we grieve. That’s the deal. That’s the pact. Grief and love are forever intertwined. Grief is the terrible reminder of the depths of our love and, like love, grief is non-negotiable. There is a vastness to grief that overwhelms our minuscule selves. We are tiny, trembling clusters of atoms subsumed within grief’s awesome presence. It occupies the core of our being and extends through our fingers to the limits of the universe. Within that whirling gyre all manner of madnesses exist; ghosts and spirits and dream visitations, and everything else that we, in our anguish, will into existence. These are precious gifts that are as valid and as real as we need them to be. They are the spirit guides that lead us out of the darkness.”
– Nick Cave

From one that can’t seem to be able to stop long enough to love or grieve properly
Love, February


    Thank you for sharing this quote! I constantly forget that it’s okay to spend time grieving the loss of a lover or a friend and as a result, I’m stuck in the stage of being angry and trying to move on instead of just feeling.


    Into my arms, oh Lord, into my arms…
