The Heart (Lucy Kaplansky)

I'm feeling uncharacteristically out of words this week - lots of deadlines/chores/To-Do's to attend to... and never enough time in which to accomplish...

For now, a Valentine's Day dedication will have to suffice - for my three amazing children-turned-adults... <3

P.S. SMM here and here...

Somehow we must see
through the shimmering cloth
of daily life, its painted,
evasive facings of what to eat,
to wear? Which work
matters? Is a bird more
or less than a man?


There have been people
who helped the world. Named
or not named. They weren't interested
in what might matter,
doubled over as they were
with compassion. Laden
branches, bright rivers.


When a bulb burns out
we just change it--
it's not the bulb we love;
it's the light.

QUOTE: "The heart is not simply suspended in a body but in a culture, a place, a time." ~ Mimi Guarneri
