Wandering and Wondering.
If life is a poem, then this line from Billy Collins Introduction to Poetry is a day, a year, two years, three, in this life -
“or walk inside the poem’s room
to feel the walls for a light switch.”
Katrina Kenison opens her book, The Gift of an Ordinary Day, with a quote by John Tarrant: “Every step in the dark turns out, in the end, to have been on course after all.”
This, surely, is a gift to all. Not just to us who worry.
