In the Dark

We stumble blindly through the darkness of life, occasionally reaching out for something to grasp onto, mostly catching nothing but air. Every now and then our hands bump into something, and we grab it and hold on tight, hoping it's something solid, but later discovering it is just another person, reaching out in the same darkness, hoping for the same solid foundation to guide them home. And once the initial disappointment fades, and we come to grips with the fact that we are still in the dark without a guide, we realize that what we found was better than a solid foundation. We are lost, but we are not alone.

If I were groping in the darkness, I would be happier to find a person than a solid foundation, whatever that may be. we're all in "it" together...

I suppose the hardest lesson to learn is to be a solid foundation yourself, and that the rest is just icing on the cake.

That being said, easier said than done (ha).

Sad and beautiful. The best of both worlds. I think I might have to read this over a couple times.
