for lola

i still amazes me that with the internet we can now reach across the world and touch people we would have never met. what a wonderful way to meet new friends and connect with kindred souls. lola recently left a comment on my blog about her own loss of a loved one. when i read this today, lola, i thought of you:

this being human is a guest house.

every morning a new arrival.

a joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes as an

unexpected visitor.

welcome and entertain them all!

even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who sweep

your house empty of its furniture,

still, treat each guest honorably.

he may be clearing you out for some new delight.
