 A quote about being at peace with one’s self…

Love After Love– Unknown Author

The time will come when with elation

you’ll greet yourself arriving at your own door

in your own mirror.

And each will smile at the others welcome and say “Sit here, eat!”

You’ll love again the stranger who was yourself

Give wine, Give bread

Give back your heart to yourself

to the stranger who has loved you all your life

Who you have ignored for another

who knows you by heart–

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror

Sit, Feast– on your life!
