What if you fly?”     (Erin Hanson)

“The Little Boy and the Old Man

Said the little boy, ‘Sometimes I drop my spoon.’
Said the old man, ‘I do that too.’
The little boy whispered, ‘I wet my pants.’
‘I do that too,’ laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, ‘I often cry.’
The old man nodded, ‘’So do I.’
‘But worst of all,’ said the boy, ‘”it seems
Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.’
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
‘I know what you mean,’ said the little old man.’”     (Shel Silverstein)




“to live in this world

you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.”     (Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Volume One)




“life’s not a paragraph
And death i think is no parenthesis”     (e. e. cummings)
