Standing alone…

“Sometimes no matter how much you love someone…if that person is unable to stand on his or her own…and you are struggling to maintain your own footing…the kindest, most loving and certainly most difficult decision is to walk away. And somewhere in time you may both find yourselves walking assuredly on a familiar path that will converge once again.”
~C. L. Gillmore, excerpt from “A Friend Request”~

“I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.” ~Mother Teresa~

May we all send out our own love letters into the world…

The road less traveled…

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I…I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
~Robert Frost~

It’s difficult to take that less traveled road. It’s unfamiliar, uncharted territory and often you find yourself walking down the road alone. But in the end, it does make all the difference, not only in our life but those who cross or walk beside us for awhile…down that less traveled road.

 

The writing of a novel.

“The writing of a novel is taking life as it already exists, not to report it but to make an object, toward the end that the finished work might contain this life inside it and offer it to the reader. The essence will not be, of course, the same thing as the raw material; it is not even of the same family of things. The novel is something that never was before and will not be again.” ~Eudora Welty, February 1970~

Once upon a time…

“Long patience and application saturated with your heart’s blood—you will either write or you will not—and the only way to find out whether you will or not is to try.”

—Jim Tully, October 1923

Thanks to Mom.

“I am thankful each day to my mother for giving me my life…my turn upon this earth…to explore, to create, to dream…to become a mother and a grandmother. What greater gift than life itself?” C L Gillmore

Violets in Clay Pots

My mom grew pink and purple violets
In clay pots on our windowsill.
Lovely, lacy single and double blossoms
With velvety leaves of forest green.
Graceful fingers pinched back dead flowers
With such practiced skill.
Coaxed the delicate plants to yield
The most beautiful blooms I‘d ever seen.
Daily she talked and sang to her violets
Touched and stroked them. Motherly.
That I could have been one of her violets
So she could have sung to me.
