I had a wonderful lunch today at Follow Your Heart and remembered why love and friendship are part of what makes life worthwhile. I hadn’t seen my friend for a while and seeing him made me happy.

When I think of the culture of hate in this country, it makes no sense.

Hatred and fear pull us apart. Sometimes I think, really?

After Paris, after Orlando, after all, you still hate me or anyone?

Isn’t the world large enough

I want love to be a big enough room for us to walk around in.

 

T.S. Eliot, “Lovesong of J.Alfred Prufrock”
And would it have been worth it, after all,
After the cups, the marmalade, the tea,
Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me,
Would it have been worth while,
To have bitten off the matter with a smile,
To have squeezed the universe into a ball
To roll it towards some overwhelming question,
To say: “I am Lazarus, come from the dead,
Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all”—
If one, settling a pillow by her head
               Should say: “That is not what I meant at all;
               That is not it, at all.”
