That’s the deal.

“It seems to me, that if we love, we grieve. That’s the deal. That’s the pact. Grief and love are forever intertwined. Grief is the terrible reminder of the depths of our love and, like love, grief is non-negotiable.”  ~Nick Cave

Local Lives

I found an amazing book at the used book store:  Local Lives: Poems About the Pennsylvania Dutch by Millen Brand, ©1975. He had kept a poetic diary for thirty-four years documenting the real people and real events of the community he lived in, publishing it almost as an afterthought. His character sketches are simply amazing.  …

And Smiled

“You could be intimidated by him, his height and thinness and black-clad persona and sunglasses, but if he pushed his sunglasses onto the bridge of his nose, you saw his turquoise eyes, and when he looked at you and smiled, it was like, ‘Oh my God, the sun came out!’” ~Paulina Porizkova, about her late …

Temples

“Better than material gifts offered in stone-made temples, churches and mosques, God loves the gifts of love, peace, and devotion offered in the temple of one’s own heart or through the temples of the hearts of others.”  ~Paramahansa Yogananda
