Happy New Year
It pays to clean off your bulletin board. Here are a couple of fun things I found:
“She said she usually cried at least once each day, not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short.”
Small Boy by Norman MacCaig
He picked up a pebble and threw it into the sea.
And another, and another.
He couldn’t stop.
He wasn’t trying to fill the sea.
He wasn’t just throwing away, nothing else but.
Like a kitten playing, he was practicing for the future when there’ll be so many things he’ll want to throw away if only his fingers will unclench and let them go.
I say amen to both of those!
