Smile Re: Working with Couples - Part Two

Hi Brendan

Your writing excites me in a number of ways ...

What I am most drawn to in what you write is the whole notion of paradox and how his plays outs....and being willing to play with paradox..

notions like... I find myself more in knowing you as a seperate person....I feel in union with you as I experience our individuality...our differences unite.... our sameness drives us apart...

and couples say even less predictable and paradoxical things like.... I miss our fights since you've left...

I guess this is what intigues me in what you write... and I like the metaphor of the birds flapping their wings seperately while flying together... these are the mysterious equations of love which I am interested in when working as a therapist andI find I tune into these paradoxical states much more with my heart than with my head... and how do I learn with my heart...head learning seems so much easier...
