Michaela bought me a present- a book I had loved in a former life and then lost/loaned.
It is this tiny book by Michael Leunig, written back in 1991;
It contains one of the few poems that I can recite by heart- “When the heart is cut or cracked or broken, don’t clutch it, let the wound lie open….” I have quoted this previously here.
Today, with thanks to Mr Leunig, (and my lovely wife) I offer you this;
God help us to live slowly
To move simply
To look softly
To allow emptiness
To let the heart create for us
And for those whose heart is not quite ready to create, perhaps this will help you realise that you are not alone;
