Look back on time

Here’s a short poem from Emily Dickinson:

Look back on Time with kindly eyes –
He doubtless did his best –
How softly sinks that trembling sun
In Human Nature’s West –

~ Emily Dickinson ~





Happy New Year, everyone!

Here are some hopeful words from Vita Sackville-West:

“The shortest day has passed, and whatever nastiness of weather we may look forward to in January and February, at least we notice that the days are getting longer.  Minute by minute they lengthen out.  It takes some weeks before we become aware of the change.  It is imperceptible even as the growth of a child, as you watch it day by day, until the moment comes when with a start of delighted surprise we realize that we can stay out of doors in a
twilight lasting for another quarter of a precious hour.”

–  Vita Sackville-West
