ATC-Love.Lamb.Silence by: T.Allen-Mercado 09/08
The initial plan entailed a weekend replete with activities and socialization. Some time Friday evening between deep breaths and trying to ward off the brewing anxiety surrounding a-not double, but triple date, I crashed.
I was missing my friend (Joe) and, I didn't want to share our time together with anyone else. I felt like being moody, brooding and pensive. I didn't want to sit through a comedy show. I didn't feel much like laughing. I didn't feel much like talking. I wanted the warmth, the comfort, the silence of sated hearts; an unspoken understanding. I wanted the stillness of being in love. I wanted to toss my cloak of courage and bask in all of my sheepish vulnerability. I wanted to be emotionally naked. I wanted to rejoice in the contained freedom that only art and love provide me. And, I did. It was heavenly. What will you do to nurture your spirit this week? Peace.
