Stars over snow
And in the West a planet
Swinging below a star —
Look for a lovely thing and you will find it,
It is not far —
It never will be far.
~ Sara Teasdale
And we close this month on the threshold of this beautiful truth. Indeed, it is equally true that if you look for unlovely things, you also find them, but aren’t we lucky not to be THOSE people, scrying the world for the ugly?
Polish the lamp, trim the wicks, spark the flint. Arise and shine.
