Favorite Quote:
There can be no society without poetry, but society can never be realized as poetry, it is never poetic. Sometimes the two terms seek to break apart. They cannot.
-Octavio Paz

Memories pierce my heart and draw tears. Saying goodbye.. only brings another chapter to its close while another begins. The exposition: it is a beautiful truth when I can carry you along through the passage of life in my mind.. so that one day, as I sit on my summit, I can thank you once more for the laughs, the love, and all the smiles. Worries are no more; sleep now and rest in peace. The white dove has been released.

The author's comments:
My beloved Grandmother, the chance to say goodbye for the last time may have passed, but I am awaiting my opportunity to say hello, once more.

Austin, she is with you and me at all times, you missed nothing ~ just tell her how you feel. Her understanding is much greater now, and you have another angel close by. I love you.

--Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away from them and you have their shoes.
--When life gives you lemons, squirt them in people's eyes.

Beautiful. I love that you can write about how you feel and include readers in your feelings. Wonderful.
