Letting Go and Holding On

I saw this quote today and thought it pertinent to my dilemma where I chose to take out my frustrations in a physical way. My friend who works in a floral shop said that holding a rose this way would kill it. I informed her the rose was already dead! But it sorts of illustrates my point, that we can smother things if we are too clingy or try to grasp and hold them with too much force. We have to find that balance, "that fine mingling." I'm working on it!


  1. Now you've got me thinking again, the rose not needing oxygen and suffering only physical damage by such a grip. Hollywood and Disney often portray such happening, however, relating it to evil's power and ability to accomplish; and, while it may not work in reality with biology, we all know the truth of it when it comes to relationship with others. A couple of great posts here, Annie....


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
