We in Haiti are brokenhearted right now. When you love, whether it's a person or a place, there's always the risk of a broken heart. We are so sad to see the suffering in the south of the country brought by Hurricane Matthew. Here's one article; you can find many more. And here's something I wrote earlier this week about how it's hitting us here in Port-au-Prince, where Matthew didn't do much damage.
In this poem, Jan Richardson is talking about losing her husband, but there are many ways hearts get broken.
A Blessing for the Brokenhearted
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
– Henry David Thoreau
Let us agree
that we will not say
makes us stronger
or that it is better
to have this pain
than to have done
without this love.
Here's the rest.
The incomparable Irene has the roundup today.
