Do you ever yearn?

I am writing again although it is slow and difficult – so here is a post from a couple years ago to hopefully hold my dwindling but faithful followers over. The flow here is so smooth and unforced – it may take a while to get back to this level.

Do you ever yearn?

Yearn: to have a strong desire for somebody or something, especially when the desire is tinged with sadness.

That is really what all these unrequited love songs are about.

Maybe it is all this rain gently washing away the January snow that has me in this yearning funk.

I don’t know… but the best way to deal with it-is to find some great songs and let them rain in on my soul.

There is something always pure about something that is unattainable-if you can’t get it then it follows that you can never diminish it. It stands there in all its glory and remains just out of reach.

Mix it with talent and music and magic happens.

  1. C.S. Lewis wrote a retelling of the myth of Psyche called Till We Have Faces that captures that whole yearning thing. For me, it’s more of a homesickness than a romantic thing. I think.

    1. That is fascinating and probably the one Lewis work I have not read — I am a big fan of “Jack” and all he stands for.
      I am going to read it and then get back to you on this. I know what it’s like to yearn for a home country that you no longer live in—-and I know what it is like to yearn for lost love —-they do feel similar. The image is there in your head like a mansion on a hill with no pathway – or like a coyote howl that echoes through the night — yearn baby yearn

  2. The Koran says that patience is the first step towards God. I would say that giving patience to ourselves is letting God take a large step within us. I enjoyed the post and in grateful that I rarely yearn for patience but I do still yearn for the presence of lost love. I don’t feel they I would be humane without that yearning. Stay well bro and give yourself patience if you able.
