What I Said Today

We all die, a little every day, but when we wear those glasses and look at the world, it makes the living all the more precious.

Scarlett,
It's just a matter of cleaning those glasses each morning so we can see clearly.

Scarlett..I am new to your blog!
I just read your "50 pearls of friendship"...quite fantastic.!
I wrote something similar last week..and I was quite (happily) surprised to see yours!

Your latest thoughts remind me of Khalil Gibran's quote.."For life & death are the same..." I don't remember the rest.
Also me thinks, some of us really need high powered glasses to really appreciate life!

I will second that! It seems that especially in our western culture we push the thought of death aside and deny its "existence". It also seems to me that if we can hold death in the forefront of our consciousness than we might live a little more fully and make every day a little more important.

my uncle passed away a few days ago,
and in a time like this for those who stay life does take on that extra "something"...

Rel,

We're supposed to clean them? But mine have developed a lovely rosey tint and I prefer them that way... ;o)


Dee,

Welcome! Glad you came by. Friendship is one of the greatest gifts we can share, celebrating it is requisite.
And, I LOVE Khalil Gibran!!!


Jeni,

Every single day is a gift and an opportunity to take what we have and make the most of it... and oftentimes, we can never quite see or know all that we really do have.
Isn't that ironic?

Alaleh,

I'm so sorry to hear it. My heartfelt sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
It really does change our perspectives, if only for a while, doesn't it?


Jon,

I quite agree, well said, sir.
