Sorrow and love
Sorrow and love are similar, I think, in that both seem to swallow us up. If this is true, then I understand why people fear both of them and desire both of them. I think that this may also be why people in sorrow and people in love are unreachable at a certain degree – they are swallowed up in their sorrow, or swallowed up in their love, and unless we are going to be swallowed up as well we have to maintain some distance. Not to say that we shouldn’t be with people in sorrow, but realizing also that there are places that we simply can not go, even though we may have been there before.
