Only By Addition



“The past is

our definition.

We may strive

with good reason

to escape it

or to escape what

is bad in it

but we will escape it

only by adding something better to it.


~ Wendell Berry


What is better in one’s life are the positive feelings

one attains by doing the will of a loving Higher Power:

being kind, loving, patient and tolerant,

compassionate and forgiving.

We can never wish away those events of the past,

we can only strive to make today a day that is

never worth forgetting.

Life is adding something better each day.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
