Sunday: Be Still and Cease Re-Pinning

25 May

Be still, sad heart! And cease repining; behind the clouds is the sun still shining; thy fate is the common fate of all, into each life some rain must fall.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
****************
Into each life some rain must fall, and fall it did. Metaphors and literal translations. We were blessed with a brief, but well needed down pour this afternoon. I remember the days when I dreaded rainy days, but with the severe drought here in Texas, each rain is a cause for celebration, I hope we get a little more.

Here’s something funny. When I read this quote to myself, my PINTEREST brain kicked in and I thought it said, Be still, sad heart! And cease repinning, you know…like when you re-pin someone’s pin. I realized that I spend too much time on social media, Facebook and Pinterest when I thought that Longfellow would cease repinning. But then, I thought, if he was around today, he’d probably be blogging and re-pinning too. So, I was half right.

    I do sometimes wonder what writes like Longfellow would have done in this day and age.

      I wonder too, Jessie. They would either be very prolific, writing for the masses, or maybe their deep gentle spirit would crumble and they’d run off to a log cabin in the woulda. If only time travel were possible to find out.

    I absolutely love Longfellow second only to Wordsworth. Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could
