When it's over, I want to say, all my life
I was a bride married to amazement,
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms...
I don't want to end up simply having visited the world.
From "When Death Comes" by Mary Oliver
My friend, Patricia sent this to me and it has caused some deep reflection about life.
Spring is a time of renewal. And not just of the earth.
Time to renew life goals and embrace what has been entrusted to me
and contemplate how to effectively give it "voice".
