Here’s another image showing a leaf half burnt by this summer’s searing heat (see! Burnt to a crisp!) and the current raindrops surrounding it.
I’m in a similar situation, I find: my psyche is still “burnt” in places from the traumas, long ago and recent, which have scarred it; yet I’m slowly healing under the guidance of my therapist, under the ministrations of my psychologist, and through my own healing actions.
Some days, the burning is more noticeable than the healing.
I want today to be one of the easier, more pleasant days.
