Another Year

28.8.08




Another long pause, then the blacksmith concluded: "I know that God is putting me through the fire of afflictions. I've accepted the blows that life has dealt me, and sometimes I feel as cold and indifferent as the water that inflicts such pain on the steel. But my one prayer is this: 'Please, God, my Mother, don't give up until I've taken on the shape that you wish for me. Do this by whatever means you think best, for as long as you like, but never ever throw me on the scrap heap of souls.' "


~ the novel, The Witch of Portobello, by Paulo Coelho



Another year older today. Another year wiser? Well...hmmmmm...the jury is still out on that one...
