December 17 Reflection

with 3 comments

There are not enough candles to light every corner darkened by the last few days, but the light in our collective soul must not be snuffed out.

Today I am thankful for the warm embrace of friends, for the gentle spirit of my life, and for moments of reflection.

For what are you thankful?

December 10 Frailty

leave a comment »

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow’s rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime’s argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are

Today I am thankful for connections, however fragile, to wonderful people. Take flight, Lalo. We will find you on the other side.

“As our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armour themselves against wonder. ”
― Leonard Cohen, The Favorite Game

The weather has been in a word, balmy. We could have driven the entire day with the top down on what felt like the perfect September day – in December. We tossed a dash of pine onto the mantel to trick ourselves into thinking “Baby, it’s cold outside.”

Today I am thankful for

.. knit stockings.

.. fresh pine garland.

.. and little Santas carved from soft blocks of wood.

For what are you thankful?
