Endings and Beginnings

"Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship."

— Clarissa Pinkola Est├ęs (Women Who Run with the Wolves)

Thank you for your comment and I am very intrigued about handwriting analysis. That is very interesting!!! Yes, calligraphy takes lots and lots of practice--blood sweat and tears as we calligraphers say. But it's all worth it!
