lessons on leaving

I don't know if there's any trick to leaving well. The day is coming, whether we like it or not, and the best we can do is make sweet memories while we can [like these ones].

I had a whole roll of beautiful film memories which mysteriously did not develop, but we at least have some digitals to hold on to.

"...there is everywhere the luminous sprawl of gifts,
the hospitality of the Lord and my
inadequate answers as I row my beautiful, temporary body
through this water-lily world."
-Mary Oliver, from “Six Recognitions of the Lord”
