Yes


This is "leveraged" blog content from 37 Days, but so beautiful and so perfect for. right. now.

Yes

It could happen any time, tornado,
earthquake, Armageddon. It could happen.
Or sunshine, love, salvation.

It could, you know. That's why we wake
and look out - no guarantees
in this life.

But some bonuses, like morning,
like right now, like noon,
like evening.

- William Stafford

That was me above. Lo was signed on so I commented under the wrong name.

I just wanted to say I love this poem and was inspired to post another, similar, this morning.

The sketch IS lovely, but I have to say I'm getting a little tired of seeing it...
