WE REAL COOL
by Gwendolyn Brooks
The Pool Players.
Seven at the Golden Shovel.
We real cool.
We Left school. We
Lurk late.
We Strike straight. We
Sing sin.
We Thin gin. We
Jazz June.
We Die soon.

“Regardless of the reason, start the day slowly, and take things at a pace that is right for you.”

I appreciated this as someone who isn‘t a morning person.

“It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.”

From William Ernest Henley‘s “Invictus”

DAFFODILS
by William Wordsworth

“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o‘er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze”

“If you are capable of loving someone deeply and observing that person closely in a caring way, that is a precious gift, deserving of someone who can appreciate it.”

“At a certain point, it might be appropriate and useful to address the time-dependent aspects of grief. Questions like, “How have you been feeling?” are almost always preferred to statements like, “It‘s only a matter of time.”

“There is a profound need among mourners to have their grief acknowledge.”

Thanks to everyone who has sent words of support to me these last few weeks. It means a great deal. ♥️
