mr. jones, mr. jones,

everything you are and space for everybody else

"Sometimes resilience arrives in the moment you discover your own unshakeable goodness. Poet Galway Kinnell writes, 'Sometimes it's necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness.'
And when that happens, we begin to foster tenderness for our own human predicament. A spacious and undefended heart finds room for everything you are and carves space for everybody else."


for the moment nothing but an ineffable joy and exaltation remained

mysterium fascinosum [shivers of happiness]


It was like the effect of some great orchestra,
when all the separate notes
have melted into
one swelling harmony, that leaves the listener conscious of nothing
save that his soul is being wafted upwards and almost bursting with its own emotion.
-William James
