You don’t have to be perfectly impressive for me…
AND you don’t have to be a wreck either.
I can’t be perfect for you, nor do I want to have to be thoroughly busted.
All we have to be is human. And — happily, gloriously — in that, we all succeed.
Okay, yes, I guess being human inevitably includes such swinging between extremes.
“In the philosophy of Heraclitus… enantiodromia is used to designate the play of opposites in the course of events—the view that everything that exists turns into its opposite.”
~ CG Jung (1949)
But I do enjoy our time in the middlewhens.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I will meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about
language, ideas, even the phrase each other
doesn’t make any sense.”
