Today I'm thinking about surrender... Meaningful surrender to the phantoms we fight (like Monday mornings). Meaningful surrender to bigger phantoms like fear and conditions we can't control. Funny how I tend to think of surrender as throwing up my hands and quitting - it's really a choice, an action in itself. Meaningful surrender - step back, quiet my mind, stop struggling. Open myself to new possibilities within current conditions...
For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.
~ Carl Sagan
Snap knows about surrender. She knows when she can't control the crazy humans - when she's going to wear ridiculous footie pajamas no matter how much she struggles. But still there is peace in her eyes - because deep inside she knows... I have to sleep sometimes. Mwahahahahahaha!
