BEING IN THE MIDDLE

Opium Poppies Painting by Simon Verelst

(these flowers used to hang in my parents’ foyer)

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

When my dear Maman spoke

“Tis best to be in the middle”

saying

“You can help raise someone up with your left hand and with your right hand, someone above you can pull you up, so just stay in the middle.”

So would she tell me, “either way, it’s good to be in the middle.”

…her wisdom stays with me…

“Man is in the middle between God and nothingness.”

by Saint John Paul II

…these Opium Poppies now adorn my writing corner with delight…
