I felt a call to search for beauty at a moment when my mind was going dark. This is what I found.
from Mornings at Blackwater by Mary Oliver
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,
So come to the pond,
or the river of your imagination,
or the harbor of your longing,
and put your lip to the world.
