From wise, kind mentor…


For stern, controlling parents’ dictates

Which taught me little more than fear of living.

Peace, the Surge of Living


“The days related to the nights, and the seasons to the years.  There were no futures.  Love had something to do with tomorrow, not with yesterday—and it occurred to him that peace was not a placid, inert thing; it was the steady throb in the bloodstream, the surge of living.”
