The Capacity for Happiness

"although you lose happiness, you do not lose the capacity for happiness" 
—Boyd Cochrell, Rage in the Wind

I think my father truly believed this; and I will do well to remember it today, his birthday, all these years after losing him, at this time when I'm feeling in danger of losing myself, wasting my precious life.

  1. your writing here does not reflect that danger.
    if this is the dark night of your soul for some reason . . .
    you are valued. your writing here is so valued.

  2. Thank you, kind soul, for lighting my dark night.
