The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Gather

What can I do with my happiness? How can I keep it, conceal it, bury it where I may never lose it? I want to kneel as it falls over me like rain, gather it up with lace and silk, and press it over myself again.
— Anais Nin, Henry & June

Gather the flowers to give to your beloved

Gather the water to feed him (her)

Gather the delight to delete what doesn’t race your engine

Gather the light

Gather the courses

Gather the petals of the dried flowers you gave your beloved

Place them in the basket and then offer them to the stream, to the rocks, to your God (or not God)

Gather the names of your beloved

All of them

Gather the glitter

Gather the pain

Offer the pain to the stream, to the rocks, to your God (or not God)

Gather the letters, put them in a box

Gather the notes, put them neatly in a folder

Gather your stale self, gather the sweat, gather the dance

Offer offer offer your grit, the glitter, your grace, the gratitude  

Gather, always gather
