Beautiful Life with Cancer

For the first time, she raised her eyes to look at him.  She only saw his back leaving.  She didn’t even know his name.  But she had seen him before, in the market, with his wife and young children.  Alone, raising herself, and redressing.

Change comes in starts and fits; it ebbs and flows along the river of life–always moving, flowing along…each moment bleeding into the next . The seasons change. Exuberant Spring quickly turns to lush Summer and then is gradually replaced by the deepening beauty of Autumn.

The World Is a Book...


 But why had he always felt so strongly the magnetic pull of home, why had he thought so much about it and remembered it with such blazing accuracy,

if it did not matter, and if this little town, and the immortal hills around it, was not the only home he had on earth? He did not know.
