But hearts aren’t simply this fragile, are they. Made of quiet and unassuming tissues that will eventually steel themselves with time. Until they are guiding that unbreakable army of one. A Force now. On high. No longer delicate. With all others expected to remain soft and exposed. No risk. All wounds preventable.

But tenderness will never happen on a battlefield. I choose to be an open Safe Haven. To stay that. Injured or not. Exposed. Not protected. That is my place. In clear view. Reachable. Breakable.

I won’t ever just stop caring. Hearts simply aren’t that fragile.

  1. Beautiful words, beautiful sentiment, beautiful soul of a caring, loving, honest, kind human. Hearts mend stronger and more resilient.
    Too many people have let their hearts get small and hard. I’m glad you’re still ready and willing to keep sharing yoursβ£πŸ’Œβ€πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’Œ

    1. Thank you πŸ˜” I like to feel it’s made me stronger but I am not there yet. When closure is purposely not offered it makes my life very difficult. But I am learning that I am very alone in that and will have to tough it out. Forever I found. Which is an awfully long time. So that is hard…but I can’t let everything else be too. Thank you so much!


  2. Did you do it finally?


    1. I don’t really know if I did or not! The path was a little more readable with no snow and the water levels dropped so i could see where it picked up on the other side. But when i got there there was no path to speak of. Only washout muck and a riverbank. Its called the floodplain loop which makes me feel like…it should have a loop in it. Which i couldnt find. I did notice the length was listed as shorter than i thought so its very possible I did the whole thing. But….no loop πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      1. See? I can appreciate that they added it but it doesn’t seem like it was ready. I saw the map and it seems like there’s a lot of private property involved. I can find zero pieces of information about it other than when they opened it?


        1. It is LOUSY with private property! Theres a skinny strip that goes between other mucky stuff that i cant believe anyone owns. I just keep going back because its so damn vexing to me I have to decode and conquer it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. Your choice, your inability to stop caring is woven into the very fabric of who you are. Those open to the greatest love are open to the greatest pain.

    Being a deep feeler sucks sometimes.

    1. Thank you so much, Dubya 😢 Indeed…very difficult. Wanted until it *isn’t* but…you know. The plucking of strings leaves quite a wake.
