This post is part of the #blogelul project started by the inimitable Ima On (and off) the Bima. I am using it as my motivation to rejuvenate this site and get myself back into the swing of things.
Jacob said to the Stranger “I will not let you go unless you bless me”.
The idea has always captivated me.
I am engaged with You. I am entwined with You. I cannot get past You, over You. I can’t get You out of my mind. I will not cease to try to wrap my head around who You are. I will not stop obsessing on You.
Until… you give me something of You to remember You by. And piece of You that you give will alter who I am irrevocably.
I will let you go when I am no longer myself.
“I will not let you go unless you bless me”.
