Juxtaposition: To love others even more than yourself, possibly.
Sometimes it looks like awe at watching a pair of tiny feet grow. Sometimes it's the way you can't stand to see your tribe not survive.
A juxtaposition: two things placed next to each other.
I -love- weird, ironic, or amusing juxtapositions.
Or juxtapositions that are beautiful through complementing or contrasting each-other… like two writers from different centuries who come to the same conclusion—but with language or stories that differ wildly… or like two images that seem to do nothing but contrast with each-other until you stare at them for a time.
“Making the decision to have a child — it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
“…locating the thing whose survival you care about in the self rather than the community is an assumption, and people can make different assumptions without being obviously wrong.”
