i look upon the patchwork of my life to find that You are the stitching that holds the many pieces together. You have revealed the symmetry that this woman's life has formed over time. the random struggles & failings were sincere efforts at understanding what i could offer to this world. the pattern comes clear over all this time. with distance, the patchwork pattern resolves into a beautiful design -- it shows Your face, my Lord Shiva, as You enfold me close, next to Your heart, & everything makes sense at last!
