T.G.I.F.: On its knees


There are moments when,
whatever the posture of the body,
the soul is on its knees.

— Victor Hugo,  from Les MiserablesChapter IV. A Heart beneath a Stone

  1. yes.
    David, sorry about that and I hope that a bit of weekend RnR might do an assist. (call in sick if you have to) family will understand. lol
    Your post made me think, as they Do. I used to whiz about & get stuff done! and still burst with energy late into the nights.
    Today, making coffee was exhausting 🙂 RnR time….

  3. There are times when I feel my knees are permanently soul-calloused from the pressure. The worry. Heavy days. Heavy loads.
    Thankfully. Gratefully.
    I manage to stand.
    Moving forward.
    Moving on…

  4. The posture and the soul are often unrelated to each other. And one can be bowed in reverence or bowed by a weight too heavy to bear. Or both. Wishing you an easy weekend, where all parts of you are happily integrated…

  5. Today my load has brought me to my knees. Thing that doesn’t happen often with me. Too busy being “resilient”. I always plough (or plow, if you prefer) on, faking it till I make it. Today, I shall remain down. It’s okay to rest, right?

  6. So true. Yoga, stretching and breathing help expand that for me! Have a great weekend Mr K 😎
