Thinking about this


“we are imperfect mortal beings, aware of that mortality even as we push it away, failed by our very complication, so wired that when we mourn our losses we also mourn, for better or for worse, ourselves. as we were. as we are no longer. as we will one day not be at all.” 

Joan Didion

  1. always mourning - can we change this or is it hard wired - maybe it's not such a bad thing that us humans do!

  6. We're always mourning for ourselves even when we think we're mourning for someone/something else.. I don't think we, being imperfect mortals, can be truly sad if the pain didn't reflect one bit of ourselves.

    I love that accompanying photo ♥
