Where your life is


What I want to say is
that the past is the past,
and the present is what your life is,
and you are capable
of choosing what that will be,
darling citizen.

So come to the pond,
or the river of your imagination,
or the harbor of your longing,

and put your lips to the world.
And live
your life.

    1. Hi Chris. Sorry to hear things are a bit tough. Hope that you are doing a bit better. I know you like Mary Oliver so I am glad this one helped. The photo is from Carlow, so not so far from Kildare which you know, Karl
