Once and Yes
“My favorite six letter word is
because it promises
My favorite five letter word is
because it insists on contradicting
My favorite four letter word is
because it says it
My favorite three letter word is
because I’m just now learning
to say it
to my heart.
My favorite two letter word is
because it makes
all things possible
If not always
If not never
Yes.”― Kate Dicamillo
May you enter open fields of joy and run with abandon.
Open to this day and all that is present before you.
We remember the extraordinary and live in the ordinary.
Mark this ordinary day be imprinted with your fingerprint, footprint, embrace.
Ordinary becoming extraordinary.
Feel the earth under your feet, the sky filled with blue and light above.
Make your answer “Yes!” to this day.
Love, be loved, enjoy the journey.
“If you have no intention of loving or being loved, the whole journey is pointless.”― Kate DiCamillo
