Each day you didn’t enjoy wasn’t yours:
You just got through it. Whatever you live
Without enjoying, you don’t live.
You don’t have to love or drink or smile.
The sun’s reflection in a puddle o water
Is enough, if it pleases you.
Happy those who, placing their delight
In slight things, are never deprived
Of each day’s natural fortune!
~ Ricardo Reis

by Molly Peacock. Full of inspiration. Nice to think that one can blossom late in life.
I hold onto that hope.
