Letting Go



"You have striven so hard, and so long, to compel life.  Can't you now slowly change, and let life slowly drift into you...  let the invisible life steal into you and slowly possess you."

What a great D.H. Lawrence quote. Hmmm.It's not easy to give up control and let life lead us, is it?

Yes, that is exactly what I am doing. Letting life flow into me and on through me. I have pretty much stopped striving..though I still reach a bit..but even that is not as compelling. Thank you for helping light up my life. I guess I think of these last years of my life "in a soft light.."

That's so pretty. It reminds me of a ballerina as she's swirling across stage letting the music "slowly possess her."

What a wonderful quote. I am going to copy it out and make a poster for my study and it will become my new mantra...because it encapsulates exactly where I am in my autumn years and Thank you Mary for the perfect quote and the subtle and perfectly matched flower.
P.S.
There's a little something for you at my place too.
