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.

Second Chances

I love the dark hours of my being
In which my senses drop into sleep.
I have found in them as in old letters
My private life that is already
lived through and become wide
and powerful, now like legends.
Then I know that there
Is room in me for a second
Huge and timeless life.

-Rainer Maria Rilke
