Reflection 4.13.18

We are to hold each other and to let each other go. One movement makes possible the other. Distance gives the space in which to reach out and hold. The intimacy of holding gives strength to the inner person–the nourishment that enables us to speed another on his way. To stand on one’s own two feet may be the real work of love.
