Time


And the years teach much the days never knew

A good friend who I don't speak with nearly enough sent this quote - i think it rests well here....

"Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God."
Aeschylus

Time. Give me more and take some away. Add years to my life and erase others. Build on my wisdom, take away pain.

Hey Paul, beautiful pic and I love what you said. Congrats on your award! Looks like we will be busy tonight! :) It kind of stinks because I wanted to give one to you! Shoot me an email if you get a chance..

these are remarkable words, words that agitate and soothe - hang in there, wherever that is right now

Anna
It does suck because I was going to throw one your way too, but Mike beat me to it - don't have time to do it now as rushing in and out - hope my other contenders are still out there when i finally put fingers to keyboards later

the pic is a bunch of horse chestnut stems coming into flower and leaf....very surreal, but very funky i think

You too - Guernsey is beautiful today

it certainly is - have been at the top of a 70ft pine tree most of my day, the view towards the harbour and the islands was breathtaking - we are blessed to live here!

This is a quote that the late Robert F. Kennedy often used in his speeches. When I was 13 years old, I memorised this - it was on the back cover of one of RFK's books - and it's stayed in my mind ever since. Wise words.

The Harbour of Ourselves said...

Ah, that makes sense - I thought I'd heard it before and now I know where - The West Wing

President Bartlett used it, as he is an amalgamation of the best of Kennedy, Carter and Clinton

Thanks for pointing that out
