Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night




Two of out blogger friends Judi Tavill and Lucy Fagella lost their best friends this week and felt safe enough in the blog community to share it with us. I thought we could take a moment and honor their loss with this moment of silence and celebration for the seasons of our lives. Please take a minute today to be silent and honor those that we have lost.......
My condolences to you Judi and Lucy and to your families,  xo
I'm going to take a blog break for a few days, I need some space to breathe............

DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO
THAT GOOD NIGHT


Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
                                                       Dylan Thomas

A friend of mine left this world last night. This is the first, and probably only blog I'll read today, it's perfect. Thank you.
My thoughts go out to Judi and Lucy also.
