Compass of the Wanderer

I love learning about everything. Most especially I love learning about different people and their unique life story. I am a storyteller at heart, and I see a story in everything. The wind and rain tell a tale that you can only hear if you listen closely, song conveys the story of the heart better than any pen, each of us have a story to tell, and each is worth the hearing.

No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.

She wasn’t a person to whom things happen. She did all the happenings.

There is always some peace in having submitted to the right. Don’t spoil it by worrying about the results, if you can help it. It is not your business to succeed (no one can be sure of that) but to do right: when you have done so, the rest lies with God—and Will!”

C.S. Lewis letter to Arthur Greeves, December 29, 1935

Sure, I’m sad, but I’m not looking to soothe that sadness by replacing it with a new relationship. Women are allowed to be sad, and they’re allowed to be single, and they don’t need to hear that one day a man is going to make it all go away by telling her she is good enough again. She’s good enough as she is.
