the tender heart

mjd - 2013

in our (mistaken) attempt to guard the heart
against vulnerability 
and pain,

mjd - 2013

we can isolate it 
from tenderness
and connection.


  1. oh maire ... i wanna say something to your post ... but i can't find the right words. i don't ever want to get a hardened heart ... ever ... doesn't matter the amount of pain ...

  2. I have always wondered if I would savour the joy if I didn't know the sadness.

  3. MJ - always hard to take risky steps but as you say we can isolate ourselves from a lot of love and joy is we don't risk a little pain. Beautiful image and thoughts. Go well. B

  4. O so true...and difficult to find the balance....but you MUST or your heart just shrivels up like a prune...and so will your FACE! ~lol~
    Much love. Love love love your weaving!!
