The Immensity of Single Day

"A merging of two people is an impossibility, and where it seems to exist, it is a hemming-in, a mutual consent that robs one party or both parties of their fullest freedom and development. But once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky.”
                                                                     ―Rainer Maria Rilke from Letters to a Young Poet

A Gathering A Sharing and Gifts of Gratitude

"Thanks, gracias,

you travel and return,

you  rise 

and descend.

It is understood, you don't

permeate everything,

but where the word of thanksgiving

appears like a tiny petal,

proud fists hide

and a penny's worth of a smile appears.

~Pablo Neruda, from Odes to Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving
