60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday: Of Me I’ve Had Enough; Time to Return to My True Self.
by Diane Wyzga | August 17, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Savannah, Georgia!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Perhaps like me the time has come for you to say, “Of me, I’ve had enough!” Time for an overhaul.
No one says time for an overhaul better than Sir Derek Alton Walcott, the Nobel Prize winning poet from the tiny island of Saint Lucia.
Love After Love [Sir Derek Alton Walcott]
“The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you 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. ”
