the daughter of the drunk at the bar

(click on the picture to see the whole sign)
Undressing Learn the alchemy true human beings know. The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given, the door will open. Welcome difficulty, as a familiar comrade. Joke with torment brought by the Friend. Sorrows are the rags of old clothes and jackets that serve to cover and then are taken off. That undressing, and the naked body underneath, is the sweetness that comes after grief.

Rumi
Michelle O'Neill at Full Soul Ahead sent me a copy of The Daughter of the Drunk at the Bar so that Janie could go on vacation.

She liked it so much, she stayed. Now she lives at the Kailua-Kona Public Library.

Aloha, Janie.

Mahalo, Michelle.
