HAPPY HOLIDAYS and a POEM

Happy Holidays to all,

I feel so blessed to have a home and so many friends and family.

Please have a wonderful holiday! See you in 2015.

Warmly,

Maureen

PS Here is one of my favorite poems.

Things to Think

by Robert Bly

Think in ways you’ve never thought before.

If the phone rings, think of it as carrying a message

Larger than anything you’ve ever heard,

Vaster than a hundred lines of Yeats.

Think that someone may bring a bear to your door,

Maybe wounded and deranged; or think that a moose

Has risen out of the lake, and he’s carrying on his antlers

A child of your own whom you’ve never seen.

When someone knocks on the door, think that he’s about

To give you something large: tell you you’re forgiven,

Or that it’s not necessary to work all the time, or that it’s

Been decided that if you lie down no one will die.
