2011 is what your life now is...

“What I want to say is

that the past is the past,

and the present is what your life is,

and you are capable

of choosing what will be,

darling citizen.

So come to the pond,

or the river of your imagination,

or the harbor of your longing,

and put your lips to the world.

And live

your life.”

– “Mornings at Blackwater,” by Mary Oliver

Happy New Year!

I hope you don't mind if I share this lovely poem with my Granddaughter, who is still very much trying to work through some dark times. Wonderful thoughts there.
