Recognizing Love

 
Franz Kafka encountered a little girl in the park where he went walking daily. She was crying. She had lost her doll and was desolate. Kafka offered to help her look for the doll and arranged to meet her the next day at the same spot. Unable to find the doll he composed a letter from the doll and read it to her when they met. "Please do not mourn me; I have gone on a trip to see the world. I will write you of my adventures."  This was the beginning of many letters. When he and the little girl met he read her from these carefully composed letters the imagined adventures of the beloved doll. The little girl was comforted.
When the meetings came to an end Kafka presented her with a doll. An attached letter explained: "my travels have changed me... "
Many years later, the now grown girl found a letter stuffed into an unnoticed crevice in the cherished replacement doll. It said: "everything that you love, you will eventually lose, but in the end, love will return in a different form."
 
What we love never leaves us; it is only that we get fixated on a particular form and fail to recognize its transformation.
