Hi, I found this quote waiting in my email this morning:
“This is the secret of life: to be non-serious but absolutely involved.” ~Sadhguru
It reminds me of a Buddhist-influenced novel Philip and I read ages ago. A fragment of a line from that book has stuck with me all these years: “to care and not to care.“
So, at long last, with the publication of Life with an Impossible Person; A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Transformation, to care and not to care becomes my immediate challenge. Of course, I want you to read it. And, of course, I want you to love it as much – or nearly as much as I’ve loved spending these past three years feeling my way into writing about Philip and about our life together. I do hope the book touches your heart. I hope it speaks to your longings and dreams. I hope it makes you laugh and cry. And if you need, I hope it heals or soothes or speaks to your pain. I also hope to let go of caring in the wrong way and wanting this precious-to-me book to be precious to you. It’s time to let it go, to let it be perfectly imperfect, much as Philip was, much as we all are.
To be non-serious but absolutely involved is a wonderful way to describe my impossibly beloved partner. His was a maddening, awe-inspiring, life-enhancing way to walk through the world. And, ultimately, to walk out of it. It was his way. I invite you to walk with him, to join me in celebrating and honoring his story. Happy non-serious but absolutely involved reading!
