Tough week so far, for wildly varying reasons. Mid-week lunch at home was very welcome! 2016-10-12-11-42-40


Bars of sunlight, autumn flowers, the gift of quiet conversation.

Yesterday and today I put the daily pun on hiatus; lines from a poem by William Wordsworth served us much better.

You know what else I’m really liking today? Naomi Shihab Nye’s “Kindness”.

  1. I’m so sorry, Ashley. It has been a very difficult week. Thank you for sharing that poem. It reminded me to two very different, but also very powerful, quotes.

    “For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so … righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad.” (2 Nephi 2:11)

    “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” (Dalai Lama)
