Rest Easy Maddy Middleton. Santa Cruz, California.


“And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.”


“I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.”
-W.B. Yeats, The Lake Isle of Innisfree



Sometimes it just becomes overwhelming. But then I think of Mary Ann Evans who said…

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”

And then I go to the barn and see these smiling faces… OK. Here I go again.
