Words that stuck with me this week … a not-so-random collection.



The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.  ~~ George Eliot

But little girls are raised on fairytales.  Is it any wonder we all crave the happy endings to the dark things in our lives?  No one ever tells you that sad things stay sad, some people die angry and unforgiven, and some things are lost and never found.  ~~ Lisa Unger, BEAUTIFUL LIES

Thank you.  *  Let me know what you need.  *  Great to hear from you.  ~~ Messages from long-lost classmates

Frogs were keeping time in air drenched with honeysuckle.  ~~ Mary Karr, LIT

The unsaid.  I am spending my life trying to say it.  That is what is mine.  ~~  Dani Shapiro, STILL WRITING

Can you become a new version of you?   New version of you, I need a new version of me. ~~ from the theme song of “Felicity”

The mess is holy.  What we inherit — and how we come to understand what we inherit — is all we have to work with.  ~~ Dani Shapiro, STILL WRITING
