Late Fragment by Raymond Carver
And did you get what
you wanted from this life even so?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
Did you get what you wanted from 2011?
Here are a few of my favorite frames- moments where I received something so fine I have to share it with you.
1. Swimming with 2 of my sisters, my daughter and husband out in to the middle of a beautiful, clear Upper Peninsula lake. What did I get? Happiness.
2. Saying goodbye to my dear pals, Isabel and Willem, who moved to Canada and the sweet hugs they wrapped around all of us here. What did I get? Joy.
3. Spending 3 and a half weeks with our German family making art throughout the Northeast. What did I get? Inspiration.
Sitting there, reading mine, I know there will be many of yours bubbling up from the wellspring of your bounteous life.
I send you sunlight upon all that blesses you today.
