Just to love! She did not ask to be loved.

It was rapture enough just to sit there beside him in silence,

alone in the summer night in the white splendor of moonshine…

 Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no; it is an ever-fixed mark, 

That looks on tempests, and is never shaken.

~ Shakespeare,  Sonnet 116

To be really great in little things,

to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life,

is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.

Summer Snail Fest is here!

Join me for a new snail image every day for the next 8 days.
