... for Words of Comfort

It has been a very sad three weeks with the death of a close friend. I have found it difficult to write while I grieve for her, and confront my own mortality. 
   Today I found a quotation, in the poem 'Auguries of Innocence' by William Blake, that, in a strange way, was oddly comforting.

    Man was made for joy and woe;
    And when this we rightly know
    Through the world we safely go.

I hope these words may be a comfort to you if you need them.


  1. My condolences! I hope you will soon be feeling better, Wendy! It's always hard to lose someone we love. It's one of the hardest things in life.

    1. Thanks for your kind thoughts, Lucille.
