I am a collector of words

Words feed me, free me, comfort, uplift and heal me. I've been saving my favorites in books, handwritten over the years and thought that perhaps in sharing them, not only am I preserving them for myself, but perhaps others may also find healing in them as I have.

"When we descend all the way down to the bottom of a loss, and dwell patiently, with an open heart, in the darkness and the pain, we can bring back up with us the sweetness of life and the exhilaration of inner growth.   When there is nothing left to lose, we find our true self - the self that is whole, the self that is enough, the self that no longer looks to others for definition or completion, or anything but companionship on the journey."  Elizabeth Lesser
