A Hole in One's Heart

Everyone has one.  Everyone has a spot that seems empty, that previously was filled with something or someone special.

I have been overwhelmed lately with the volume of sad news in my own circle of friends.  So many illnesses, and deaths, and closing of chapters in loved ones' lives.  In my own home there are "closing cycles, shutting doors, ending chapters", to quote my friend Paulo Coelho.

I believe one of life's challenges is to find ways to help fill those holes; to help heal them in our own hearts and in the hearts of others.  We must look outward for new opportunities and new relationships.

The new year sounds like a good time for healing.
