“Maybe a human life is organic but in Goethe’s sense of negative form. The shape of a leaf, he said, is determined by the absent spaces (like the shape of an Oriental jar is shaped around and by the emptiness inside). Maybe all the missing bits and misfortunes are actually the blessings that make us the peculiar people that we are.” – James Hillman

  1. I’ve been thinking about the spaces lately…. Maybe that’s where all the “important” stuff happens. 🙂

  2. I sure think so, Teresa… the good, the bad, and the ugly = beautiful and perfect.
