a bruised knee. a cut finger.
a headache. chronic back pain.
a broken heart. not being able to say ‘i love you’.
throwing away your abused 10-year old beloved shirt. divorcing a dear friend you can no longer recognise.
your sitar with a crack. your child with special needs.
losing a bet. losing your job. losing your dog. losing your child.
pain. we all know it. we all live it.
If not for it, how would we ever value life’s small pleasures?
