Marble World

We live in a painfully beautiful, distressingly passionate, agonizingly real marble world

The process of life pounds us and picks at us, every day chipping away at our very existence

Creating from us what is new and lovely and inspiring

Creating form of out of what would otherwise be a nothing

Breaking us and deforming us, leaving us scrambling to find our missing pieces

Until we realize that losing those pieces of ourselves has made us whole

Until we find what this world falling apart has made us:

Full figures of excellence

Statues of brilliance brought to life by heartache, struggle and the will to endure all of it just to be

Each one of us a part of this marble world in all its glory

Maybe this is what it really means when they say that beauty is pain
