what if…

“And what if
in your sleep
you dreamed
And what if
in your dream
you went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower
And what if
when you awoke
you had that flower in your hand
Ah, what then?”
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Complete Poems

“We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are and will ever be.
Yet it is only love which sets us free.” ~ Maya Angelou

what we’re reading today…

‘Life’ wrote a friend of mine, ‘is a public performance on the violin, in which you must learn the instrument as you go along.’  ~  E.M. ForsterA Room with a View

“I read for pleasure and that is the moment I learn the most.” ~ Margaret Atwood

The rain to the wind said,
‘You push and I’ll pelt.’
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt
And lay lodged, though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.

~ Robert Frost
