For you (4)

 

 

“What we call the beginning is often the end

And to make an end is to make a beginning

The end is where we start from”

— T. S. Eliot : < The Little Gidding >

I read, I like, I share (19) : Robert James Waller

“When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children, in one way her life begins but in another way it stops.

You build a life of details. 

You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move.

And when they leave they take your life of details with them.

And then you’re expected to move again only you don’t remember what moves you because no one has asked in so long.

Not even yourself.”

 

— Robert James Waller – “The Bridges of Madison County”

 

 

Wise Words (2)

It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watch them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd.  

At the time, you don’t think much of it.    

You know, we just don’t recognise the most significant moments of our lives while they’re happening.  

Back then, I thought, “Well, there’ll be other days.”

I didn’t realise that that was the only day.
