A powerful, thoughtful, thought-provoking blog…

Today, Roger at www.citrus.wordpress.com has posted “Scary”, in which he has gifted us all with a poem “Advice to Myself” by Louise Erdrich. It is a powerful poem, made me think of the many occasions when I understood and accepted the finiteness of my existence, of my unimportance in the scheme of things, and the impermanence of all experience and of all natural phenomena. Change, constant, inevitable, is the one certainty I must acknowledge and truly hold firm in my awareness during this journey down the river of life.  A daunting prospect, and yet at the same time I find a certain relief in receiving this reminder today.

    Thank you so much. And especially Louise Erdrich who I must learn more about.
