Have you ever been betrayed? Have you ever suffered? Felt anguished, tortured, forsaken? Me too. We try to figure it out, don’t we?

We’ve heard these ideas over and over: Love is powerful. Love heals all wounds. Love what is. Love yourself. Love your neighbor as yourself.  All you need is love.

We’re moving into the darkest time of the year. The days are shortening; the nights seem to be increasing their steady pull into the intensity of shadow and black.
