this morning, going through papers to recycle, i found this. a mind map that i made a few months ago when Mabel and i were having hard times. i was trying to find answers, a way through, something to put my hand to. it’s a bit messy and hard to read in places (if you click on the image, you can see a slightly larger, clearer version). but it just goes to show how much we know. how much our hearts know. i felt completely at loose ends, lost and sad. but still with some focused energy, a clean sheet of paper, and a few colored pencils, while the little one slept, i could come up with the beginning of some answers. i’m just as surprised as you.
