inscription from a tombstone in britain.
what an epitaph.
"in moments of discouragement,
defeat or even despair,
there are always certain things to cling to.
little things usually:
the face of a sleeping child,
a tree in the wind . . .
in fact, any reminder of something
deeply felt or dearly loved.
no man is so poor as not to have
many of these small candles.
when they are lighted,
darkness goes away . . .
& a touch of wonder remains."
so, what were your small candles today?
mine: sewing creation. new work.
writing hero. love-day prep. good eats.
share yours, will you?
