Our Inner Lives Are Eternal

by N.Wait 2023

They graced my desk for weeks it was, though I didn’t keep track of the time. And though I noticed when they began to droop, I paid it no mind. And so they settled into a whole new state. Silently and without complaint they lowered their heads and became skirts with fiery tips.

“Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom.” ~ Gabriel Garcia Marquez ~ Love in the Time of Cholera

  2. I’m so glad that I asked what IMHO stands for, so now I know! If it’s helpful for anyone else out there in blogland who doesn’t know, it’s In My Humble Opinion. It’s humbling indeed to admit how much I don’t know! 😅

  3. Love this Nancy! Silently and without complaint they lowered their heads—this seems like a gentle reminder of the occasional need for and appreciation of humility.
