Here is a bit of poetry that I have lifted from another blog, Killthemwithcraftiness.blogspot.com. As you see it is by the Sufi poet Hafiz, who lived, I think, approximately in the 12th century [don't hold me to that]. But, what a powerful observation! How many ruminations it suggests to us.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
