Hidden tales

A veil of silence closes around the stories of my day. They are stories of love, and of loss, and of the heartache that we each experience at some point in our lives. Of the tragedies played out behind staid lace curtains or ultra-modern blinds, in the quiet precincts of home or the corridors of aseptic impersonality. They are all our human stories that mark the rites of life and the seeds of growth, defining the learning curve of emotion. And they touch us all, as soon as we open ourselves to love in any of its myriad guises.

What is the alternative? A bland life lacking in the emotional peaks and troughs…? While we think that we could happily live without the heartaches perhaps… without them would we be able to look up to the heights and appreciate their beauty? You only see the true glory of a mountain when you have climbed it from its roots.

    In the movie Interstellar, ‘love’ is touted as the ultimate expression of quantum physics and multi-dimensional communication. The movie was promoted as ‘hard SF’ (meaning all scienc-y and stuff) and the ‘love’ mcguffin was rightly-or-wrongly-depending-on-your-point-of-view, given short shrift. But as an expression of pure energy and focused with the intensity of a passionate mind/body/spirit it really can be that powerful. 😀

    P.S. I got all teary at the communion between your lads. 🙂

      I don’t think there is a more profound expression of pure energy. As the basis for creation, on either macro=or microcosmic levels, what else do we know of that can do as muc?
      (I still do.It was the most beautiful thing to see.)
