How Long is Thirty Years?May 14, 2009 7:00 am True Self, Wholeness Adventure
When Torm died, Gwilan looked back over her life with him.
Thirty years, how can you say how long that is, and yet no longer than the saying of it: thirty years. How can you say how heavy the weight of thirty years is, and yet you can hold all of them together in your hand lighter than a bit of ash, briefer than a laugh in the dark.
The thirty years began in pain; they passed in peace, contentment. But they did not end there. They ended where they began.
