I’m stringing together words

connecting us like beads

winding threads

capturing beauty that flashes in the light

I’m stringing us tightly together

knotting now so we can

recreate this moment

when we fear we are unravelling.

Pass word needs 8

characters, a symbol, a capital,

and a number.


For your own security

Don’t write  down your

user name or  pass word!


Remember everything

even if you only use the site

once a year.

In Fire and Hemlock Diana Wynn Jones says,

For you , the only way to behave well was to behave badly.  For me, the only way to win was to lose.  You weren’t to know me, and I wasn’t to remember you.

The paradox of this captured me, so I copied it down to ponder.   The rest of this quote talks about letting go being the only real way to love someone.

What does it mean to you?
