Fall with gratitude

Falling.

Being reduced to needing to be held. Cared for.

Requiring that we put aside our independence and become dependent.

Being reminded, all over again, that we are not functional as solitary individuals.

Unity is plural. At minimum two.*

I am better in partnership. You are better in partnership.

Falling to earth, into the humus, the mud and dirt of existence, won’t let me forget.

That same dirt, that same mud, no matter what our status in life, is where we return, more than once. Until our final return.

Fall with gratitude.
