let’s lock our dreams my love


“Then a woman said, “Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow.”
And he answered: Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

Some of you say, “Joy is greater than sorrow,” and others say, “No, sorrow is the greater.” But I say to you, they are inseparable. Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed. Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy. Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced. When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weight his gold and his silver, need must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall” Joy and Sorrow, Khalil Gibran

    Such a beautifully profound poem, my favourite of the Prophet. Each time I read it I seem to find a different interpretation. Gibran’s a literary genius.

  2. My wife and I attached a lock to the Sant’ Angelo bridge in Rome during our few days there. I’m hoping when we go back in a few years it will still be there.

    • I wish your lock to be in there for years!
      Those are the locks in Verona, Italy. When I were there, I did not understand for what those locks are there 🙂 I learnt the meaning last weekend in Paris, two bridges crossing Seine were full of locks in various shapes, colors, names of the couples on the locks, heart etc. It was fantastic! Next coming posts I will share locks of love in Paris.
