Breaking into Bliss
What a lovely sentence I heard on the radio driving home tonight.
"Breaking into Bliss". Freeman Patterson was being interviewed at length on CBC and this is what he said when he described moments of acute observation and feeling joyful with one's world. He has survived many challenges and pain.
And it got me to thinking of when we reach that other side of pain, we earn those stripes of bliss. I truly believe we can only break into bliss if we know what deep dark pain is.
Tonight, I was at Easy Down Easy, a play by Gordon Pinsent when I broke into bliss myself.
Thinking: by gum, I'll be joining Gordon soon in this playwriting thing.
