Thoughts on a rainy afternoon

(Image Source: Bing)

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things...

(Poem by Mary Oliver)

  3. When I was young and not feeling very well, my mom would sometimes buy me a new coloring book and crayons ~ my imagination would fill with thoughts and ideas and they would become my friends for the afternoon.
