The Season for Circling Back +Advent+

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame. — Song of Solomon 8:6

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame. — Song of Solomon 8:6

Advent is the season for circling back,

for returning to how the whole affair began in the first place,

for reclaiming the early infatuation

when living was all waiting, yearning and longing,

when your heart brimmed with hope and expectations

and you thought  you could stake a lifetime

on this, your first love

and give yourself over to it,

over and over again.
