“Tears are a river that takes you somewhere…Tears lift your boat off the rocks, off dry ground, carrying it downriver to someplace better.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Laughing, until your sides hurt, with someone closest to your heart. Joyful tears that etch happy memories within your being.
Crying, uncontrollably, not able to sleep. Painful tears that stab at us in the darkness. Sometimes, for no reason at all, more often, because of so much we want to forget.
Anger that unleashes tears of protest, defiance…or sorrow. We cry over the injustices in our world, those directed at us and the unspeakable tragedies we cannot control.
This river of life takes each of us on a voyage that twists and bends in so many emotional directions. As we coast along the way, the current drives us to the next resting spot where we close our eyes and wait for tears to fall again. And take us..somewhere.
