Next to Simeon the Prophet

she waited. Widow with a word,

forthtelling of coming light.

There was nothing else
calling her name but His
across the years like an
echo from The Garden
so long ago.

She’d been seeking
(was He hiding?)
for what else was her
life but this–an always
looking in the temple courts,
trusting the doorway
would be darkened some day
when Light came in the room.

“Book love... is your pass to the greatest, the purest, and the most perfect pleasure that God has prepared for His creatures.”
Anthony Trollope

Anne Lamott
“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
