A Poem for Us All

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.

-Raymond Carver, Late Fragment*

A day of love and peace to all of you,
and much love to the man who brings much music into my life.

(sorry for the blurred photo but we were just so excited to get to the concert)

With love, with faith, with kindness, with compassion, with patience, with understanding, with forgiveness, with determination, maybe even with luck--with whatever it takes--
here's to many more trips to the lake; here's to many more concerts in the park....

(*I was reminded of this poem when reading A Bird in the Hand's blog recently.)
