tell yourself

"I have claimed my poems to be failures when, in fact, what I should do while writing a poem, is to say thank you and move on. We should be grateful when a poem visits us."  

~ Li-Young Lee

A quick post, once again. Looking for colour in January. Looking for a certain strength...

I'm reminded of the poem, "Lines for Winter" by Mark Strand which begins:

Tell yourself
as it gets cold and gray falls from the air
that you will go on
