We grace this world momentarily
Light like a ladybug
Cherish this moment
Love those close and dear
Make the world a better place
Oh how quickly
It’s been years since I last read Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being. The first time I didn’t understand it all. Why do two people who love each other hurt each other? How can the philandering Tomas love different women so genuinely yet also claim to only love Teresa?
Having lived a bit longer the book makes more sense. Tomas lives on the lightness of life. One life, one chance. Why not love all and experiencing all? His love for other women doesn’t take away from his love for Teresa.
Teresa lives on the heaviness of life. One life, one chance. Why not love one and love one perfectly? Her love for Tomas is wholesome, all-encompassing. The moment she showed up at his doorstep, suitcase in hand, she had found the love of her life and never looked back.
One life. One chance. How do you live yours?
