{comfort in words}

In the woods

"If ever I had a good mind, it has been lost in the shuffle.  I seem to have stagnated, and I am aware that I am not using any capacity I have to the fullest."
                                                 Meditations For Women Who Do Too Much

To know that someone has stood exactly where I stand, and found the words to articulate it, is such a blessing and a comfort at this moment. Suddenly I know that I'm not alone.  That others have walked this troubled road.

And also to know that there are words to describe exactly how I'm feeling at the moment.  This too is a great relief.  I have felt like a prisoner in the silence, knowing that something has been eating away at me, but not being able to put my finger on the detail of it.

I don't know what happens next but finally I have a language for the constant state of boredom and inertia that has been troubling me for weeks.


  1. That quote certainly is well put, and does describe my frame of mind lately...

  2. These words so resonate with me. Perhaps there are many of us that feel the way you do right now, but also don't have the words to express it or know what to say. I love your photo.
