My favorite quote came to me after I lost my first husband but I have forgotten the author.....

There is a land of the dead and a land of the living......the bridge is LOVE.

I always thought of it as the journey of healing and then once I found DH #2 I added to the quote as follows....

There is a land of the dead and a land of the living...the bridge is LOVE.....isn't love grand? :)

michelle, i love your quotes about the bridge, and your addition. :)

my partner died in 2003. the grandkids' dollhouse projects are a way to honor her, sending her love along with mine to the little ones.

From Edna St. Vincent Millay:

Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;

Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.

I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

I'm so glad no one has posted: been there, done that, cause then I'd have had to kill myself.

Here's a beautiful quote from one of the most successful films of all time, wonder if anyone will recognize it:

Who is the more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?

I found those quote last nigh at work while looking through a book on building timberframe houses...

Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest of all the arts.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I had to share because build is indeed what we all do and it is an art form, especially in miniature.

Here's to us.... :wave:

Great things come in small packages, unless it's a big package filled with small things :D

Like my box from HBS that should be here any day now!

Dear Ladys and Jellyspoon

I'm here before you, to stand behind you,

to tell you something I know nothing about.

This monday, which will be good friday,

there is a father's meeting for mother's only.

Admission free, pay at the door,

take a chair and sit on the floor. :banana:

:lol: Ever stop to think,

and forget to start again? :D

One of our cats, Trinity, does this frequently. Her brain reaches overload capacity very quickly. She does have a reset button; however, just toss a sponge ball and she'll chase after it. :banana:
