"It’s entirely conceivable that life’s splendor surrounds us all, and always in its complete fullness, accessible but veiled, beneath the surface, invisible, far away. But there it lies, not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If we call it by the right word, by the right name, then it comes. This is the essence of magic, which doesn’t create but calls.” Franz Kafka, from his diaries HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL AND TO ALL THE VERY BEST 2019. May peace prevail. ♥ - Jamie Dedes (The Poet by Day and The BeZine)
hear those bells ringing? jingling? portending days of joy? fat cats eating mice for breakfast rabbits for lunch baby wrens for dinner proclaiming the good news of sales and fear mama works her skeletal fingers on designer jeans forced to eat off of the floor two bits a dollar the widow's mite stolen by black Friday a reflection on the biggest holiday shopping day of the year. stay home and love each other instead.
if i could create a day where all the world stopped and simply turned to each other and offered love, i would. no christmas trees but magnolias no poinsettias but roses no reindeer but bunnies lounging in the sun relaxing on the grass. a fantasy land where love and goodwill pervades the land of green, green grasses and warmth invades our bones not just from the sun but from the loving kindness flowing from heart to heart. lovemas.
