Solar Eclipse Each morning I wake invisible. I make a needle from a porcupine quill, sew feet to legs, lift spine onto my thighs. I put on my rib and collarbone. I pin an ear to my head, hear the waxwing's yellow cry. I open my mouth for purple berries, stick on periwinkle eyes. I almost know what it is to be seen. My throat enlarges from anger. I make a hand to hold my pain. My heart a hole the size of the sun's eclipse. I push through the dark circle's tattered edge of light. All day I struggle with one hair after another until the moon moves from the face of the sun and there is a strange light as though from a kerosene lamp in a cabin. I pun on a dress, a shawl over my shoulders. My threads knotted and scissors gleaming. Now I know I am seen. I have a shadow. I extend my arms, dance and chant in the sun's new light. I put a hat and coat on my shadow, another larger dress. I put on more shawls and blouses and underskirts until even the shadow has substance

And I know that there are black boys and black girls out there lost in a Bermuda triangle of the mind or stranded in the doldrums of America, some of them treading and some of them drowning, never feeling and never forgetting. The most precious thing I had then is the most precious thing I have now—my own curiosity. That is the thing I knew, even in the classroom, they could not take from me. That is the thing that buoyed me and eventually plucked me from the sea.
Some things cannot be fixed; they can only be carried. Grief like yours, love like yours, can only be carried. Survival in grief, even eventually building a new life alongside grief, comes with the willingness to bear witness, both to yourself and to the others who find themselves inside this life they didn’t see coming. Together, we create real hope for ourselves, and for one another. We need each other to survive. I wish this for you: to find the people you belong with, the ones who will see your pain, companion you, hold you close, even as the heavy lifting of grief is yours alone. As hard as they may seem to find at times, your community is out there. Look for them. Collect them. Knit them into a vast flotilla of light that can hold you.
What we all share in common - the real reason for this book - is a desire to love better. To love ourselves in the midst of great pain, and to love another when the pain of this life grows too large for one person to hold. This book offers the skills needed to make that kind of love a reality.

Ces enfants mûrissent trop tôt parce que, ayant été rendus sensibles aux malheurs, c'est ce qu'ils savent 2le mieux voir. Ils sont attirés par les blessés et désirent les aider. Ils comprennent ce more de relation qui les revalorise. Le comportement oblatif qui consiste à donner à ses propres dépens leur permet de gagner un peu d'affection, au risque de rencontrer quelqu'un qui en profitera, car ils sont faciles à exploiter. Ce don de soi n'a pas la grandeur du sacrifice puisqu'ils le font discrètement, parfois même en cachette. L'oblativité prend plutôt l'effet d'un rachat par ceux qui ont commis le crime de survivre quand leurs proches sont morts. Ces enfants, adultes trop tôt, aiment devenir parents de leurs parents. Ils se sentent un peu mieux en vivant de cette manière qui les prive d'une étape de leur développement mais les revalorise et les socialise. Ne les félicitez pas pour ce comportement, car ils détestent tout ce qu'ils font. Vous risqueriez de saboter ce lien fragile. Vous les trouverez mignon et touchant parce que ce sont des enfants. Mais leur fraîcheur apparente masque leur malaise. Quand on est malheureux, le plaisir nous fait peur. Non seulement, on n'a pas le désir du plaisir, mais on n'a honte à l'idée d'avoir du plaisir. Alors l'enfant trop adulte découvre un compromis: il s'occupera des autres. Ces enfants qui veulent fuir leur enfance haïssent le passé qui s'impose dans leur mémoire encore fraîche. Ils la combattent grâce à une préparation comportementale au déni, une jovialité excessive, une recherche exaspérée de ce qui peut faire rire, une quête d'engagements superficiels, une hyperactivité incessante qui les pousse vers le présent en fuyant le passé.

Never say that you can't do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can't be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible. Master yourself, and become king of the world around you. Let no odds, chastisement, exile, doubt, fear, or ANY mental virii prevent you from accomplishing your dreams. Never be a victim of life; be it's conqueror.

Heart Rings What stories would our bones tell if they had rings like trees? circles marking the times when you felt loved when you were in love when you grieved when you did something that required every last ounce of your courage when you were full of faith — That is how our hearts work a lone, rhythmic documentarian chronicling your life in the shadow of your flesh mysterious even to its owner And someday we might learn that it was drawing a map for the soul to navigate the real final frontier

I realized I had let my own incapacity to recover from my past shrink my world so that it was big enough for only me. It was hitting me now, really for the first time, how being fucked up can turn into a form of narcissism. So that I barely acknowledged that others might need something from me.
