To Live

A    L    O    H    A  !
" 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; 
when the time comes 
to let it go, 
to let it go. "

Mary Oliver

But I don't wanna let go! Glad memories make a wonderful bank vault in my brain. Sigh...

And to thrive in this world you need to recognise, celebrate and share beauty. Which you do.

The hibiscus is exquisite Cloudia, and Mary Oliver is one of my favorites. I have several poems that I love of hers.

We are many months from seeing a hibiscus around here. It was 12 degrees this morning!

That letting go part sometimes gets tough.
