At night I close my eyes to see beauty, and then in the morning I open them. This is the essence of being awake— to open your eyes to live your dreams, or live without them because you don’t need them.
All the world’s beauty to appreciate includes the beauty worth dreaming about, and beauty about which I dared not dream. There is beauty in darkness and in light— who am I not to fall in love with it?
I’ve dreamt of beauty I could not describe, but nor can I describe beauty I’ve seen. To encounter beauty is irony— it stops my heart and makes me feel alive, touched and moved by ethereality.

The endless mercy of her love is a sustaining salvation. Her judgment of my feeble soul— the most awesome revelation.
Her love is a merciful hand to the undeserved in despair. She judged my woeful heart’s intent and placed her absolution there.
She cannot love without mercy, as the living depend on rain. She judged my spirit perfectly. Her kindness washed away my pain.
The mercy with which she loves me— the greatest blessing one can give. Her judgment’s better than my own, it makes the world in which I live.
The ancient Jewish tradition is that the world was founded on mercy and judgment because the world could not survive on either alone. She makes my world possible with both.
