THE JADE NOTEBOOK and Laura Resau are all kinds of inspiration for me right now. Check out Ruth Ayres Writes next week as I share more (and bring back the Discover. Play. Build. Challenge). Meanwhile, be sure to check out Laura Resau’s blog, Ocean in a Saucer. You won’t be disappointed.
A beautiful mess. I often claim this phrase. It has layers of meaning for me and I’m constantly learning more about the beautiful mess of life. I like this image. So it’s no surprise that these words from THE JADE NOTEBOOK by Laura Resau speak to me:
His voice softens, almost inaudible now. “You know, your life will be a mess too, Zeeta.”
It’s as if he can look right inside to my deepest fear. “Maybe not,” I say weakly, staring at the dark ocean.
“Oh, it will, sooner or later. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it.”
I close my notebook, trying to keep my voice steady. “My life has been a mess for the past seventeen years. There’s no where to go but neater.”
He grins into the darkness. “Life can always get messier.”
