morrie's wisdom, again....

"have i told you about the tension of opposites?" he says.

the tension of opposites?

"life is a series of pulls back and forth. you want to do one thing, but are bound to do something else. ...a tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. ..."

sounds like a wrestling match, i say.

"a wrestling match." he laughs. "yes, you could describe it that way."

so which side wins, i ask?

"which side wins?"
he smiles at me, the crinkled eyes, the crooked teeth.

"love wins. love always wins."

~tuesdays with morrie, page 40....

one of the greatest things in my life is my friendships. ones that last for so many years, that when you think back, it seems impossible it's been so many years, and at the same time it seems like it's impossible it's been so few. ...pookie is one. jon-e, golisano, jonathan, all years and years of friendship. freddie is another. and even though we just caught up on our lives, and have realised how very different our lives have been up to now, i am so thankful that after more than 12 years, we can pick up and begin again.

even though everything has changed in that time, nothing has. when you have love in the friendship, it always wins.

::hugs:: more than we can fit in.
