“ What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never loose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us.”
– Helen Keller

“My friend complemented me on my resilience, for even thinking such thoughts.  But resilience is a word that imply’s bouncing back, with a quick elasticity of a rubber ball.  If only it were so easy.  To me, it was
more like a trek that begins in the flinty terrain of sadness, mourning, and shock.  It’s tough going to be sure, but as in  most things in life, in time you learn to cope, to adapt, to keep on looking forward.  Gradually the scenery itself brightens and changes, as if you past into another calmer territory altogether.”
– Diane Cole
