Calla Lily / Look Closely / Wait

Photobucket

I've just finished reading a book about a girl called Calla Lily. I won't tell you the name of it because it was a pathetic read. One of those books that you pick up from the library, noting the inscription 'author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller' and think, well this should get me through a couple of days of escapism. It didn't. It could have. With redrafting. It was interesting to observe myself tho continuing to read it, thinking I might miss something interesting if I stopped. Like life really.

There were a couple of gems in there that did resonate with me. That prompted me to remember. So, it wasn't a total loss.

Sadness can find you anywhere, anytime, so you better have fun when you can.


Look closely now, she said, and wait. These are the two most important things I can tell you.... Look closely and wait.

I've just heard that somebody I treasure is very unwell. She's somebody many of you treasure as well. Our darling Renee over at Circling My Head. My heart is breaking for her, her family and for us.

Thank you Chrisy, I know you share this sadness and I wish I could take all of us and fly to her side and hold the hand that fed so much love to everyone. I am so sad that even the sunshine outside my window today is gray.

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words Chrisy. It means a lot to me.
In regards to Renee, I'm sorry I don't know her. From what I've read, I can tell she has a lot of love and support right now and I will send some comfort energy as well.
I love the photo up top...

Watch and wait - very wise words. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend...it's very hard when someone we care about deeply is unwell. I hope she manages to recover.

Hope you had a relaxing and regenerating weekend. XOXO's

Hey Harriet said...

The amount of books I've read thinking they'll get better as I go along. And it doesn't happen. Sometimes does though!

I'm very sorry Chrisy about your friend. Hope she will be ok.
