The absence of presence…

How can you be friends with someone afraid of life?

How can you pet a cat stuck up in a tree?

How do you dance in a minefield?

The absence of presence does not equal the presence of absence. He whose presence is absent to us may yet very well be present by his absence for us. A hug, an embrace, is an empty space, an absence of a concrete obstruction.

Think on it.

Dancing in a minefield is best done at night with sunglasses on - so at least you look cool when you get blown to smithereens... thanks for the food for thought."
