“the crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last forever.

even on the most beautiful days in the whole year –

the days when summer is changing into autumn –

the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change.”

this is the solstice.

Standard

“this is the solstice,

the still point of the sun,

it’s cusp and midnight,

the year’s threshold and unlocking,

where the past lets go of and becomes the future;

the place of caught breath,

the door of a vanished house left ajar.”

“Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” – pema chodron
