Quote for the Week

Late Fragment by Raymond Carver

And did you get what

you wanted from this life, even so?

I did.

And what did you want?

To call myself beloved, to feel myself

beloved on the earth.

Lovely poem and food for thought. Widowed 5 years, and partnerfree in spite of an intriguing offer or two, I am beginning to recognise myself as beloved, even though it isn't coming from a man's lips. Though this doesn't feel like a circle of love, perhaps it is, with God. I guess I couldn't ask for a better partner...but a flesh and blood one sure would be nice!
