Favorite Quote:
I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be devoured by spiders and man by his sorrows--Voltaire

Give a coin to the wishing well
It shimmers
Clashes with the murky waters
So wish on it
Think on it
And flash back on your best days
The worst days
The just in-between days
To dream of what might be tomorrow

Give a coin to the wishing well
It listens better than most
Sometimes it's best
To leave your wishes
To coins and silvery fish

I love that you can give life to a wishing well.  You make it seem like a living thing.
