my attempt at blending the arts I cherish
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
— Clive Staples Lewis
he says this with authority…because once as a boy he chose to keep his heart locked up tight when his mother passed away. but then as a man he fell in great love with joy gresham and allowed himself to be opened up. and with such a vulnerability, he became broken as she passed from life to greater life.
i will wait for fifty years if i must to wait for the love that they shared. and i will continue to be vulnerable in the meantime.
what if poems could be symphonies, and people their orchestra?
