Be Divine


The need for a woman to tell and retell

the stories of her life is no idle preoccupation.  

It is a way for her to pass on wisdom

to those who are younger.  

It is a vital process of coming to terms

with events and experiences in a way

that expands her frame of reference,

giving the drama of a lifetime a cohesive, spiritual meaning.     

Joan Borysenko in “A Woman’s Book of Life”

Glamour Portraits of the Goddess in Every Woman


Love After Love  

The time will come when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

Derek Walcott

    Dear Sharky,

    I read this one day and it touched my heart, the way I found my one true love. I did not know where to share it until now. Sometimes we take life for granted until we see it in print. I look forward to the quotes you share with us. They are not just words they do have real meaning in our lives.

    True love begins when nothing is looked for in return
