Today was a tough day.
Then, a dear friend reminded me of a favourite quote. The first time I read it, I was reminded of my love of reading.
"Sometimes I recognize myself in others.
I recognize myself in those who will endure, friends who will shelter me, beautiful holy fools of justice and flying creatures of beauty and other bums and vagrants who walk the earth and will continue walking, just as the stars will continue in the night and the waves in the sea. Then, when I recognize myself in them, I am the air, coming to know myself as part of the wind." --Eduardo Galeano
I definitely plan on giving one special flying creature all of my love & attention as soon as he steps off the plane Wednesday...
To all of you who called, posted on Facebook and left messages of love and concern: Thank you!
