212/365: 'Under Heaven'
“What can you ever really know of other people's souls - of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles? One soul in the whole creation you do know: and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands” ~ C.S. Lewis
"The more sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain..." On days like these, I try to remember that. There's nothing more heartbreaking than seeing a person you love in excruciating pain and not being able to do anything to comfort them. You hear them hopelessly screaming in agony and you can't even touch them. When there is no possibility to even say your final goodbye...
Some people seek comfort by getting their fortunes told, their cards unfold or their palms read; any slight chance of peeking at what the future holds. The truth is, no one knows what will happen tomorrow. Life is terrible, messy and painfully short. There's no guarantee everything or everyone we have today will be around tomorrow.
I'll be away for a couple of weeks guys. I'll still be posting but unable to visit. Comments will be off for now. I hope to see you guys when I return.
