Ships Ahoy

In the Woody Allen movie
he is standing in front of a dark painting
along side a woman dressed all in black.

'What do you think it means?" he said.
Without looking at him
she says;
'it expresses the dark, filthy destiny
of the human race,
Its expresses degradation,
the horror of living.
The hopelessness.'

Something to that effect.

Woody Allen says:
"What are you doing Thursday night? "
She says
'Committing suicide.'
He says'
'What are you doing Wednesday night? '

Woody is focused on getting a date.

She is focused on Darkness.

Both want
what they want.

Makes you laugh and cry at the same time.

Sometimes our ships in life, marriages and relationships
grapple together and separate
and that is often
simply the nature of things
making us often
cry
and laugh
at the same time
filled in either case

with Experience
and sometimes ships that sail away

also sail back
unpredictable sailing

as to dark

or light.

Yes, a really great piece here, and I think it is so important to gulf distances and differences with communication.
Blessings,
