a proximate love

8-approximate-love

‘Yet the whole time, this love is but a few inches from you.’*

A few inches for me means two people getting together for a coffee or going for a walk in which open questions are asked and deep listening to one another takes place towards one another’s greater wellbeing.

What does it look like for you?

(*John O’Donohue, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer.)
