59. on loneliness and longing

Loneliness and longing are like two halves of a couple who can never be together. Like in the movie Ladyhawke where the man was a man by day but a wolf by night and his love was a hawk by day and a woman at night. Thus, they could only be together as man and woman at the instant the sun dipped below the horizon.

Loneliness and longing are like this, madly in love but never able to be together. And that’s why there is so much ache tied to those emotions – because you’re shairing in their impossible, insatiable need to be with their all too significant other.
