Beautiful title. Can take no credit, but isn't it a wonderous thing to ponder? Echoes. That's all I really do here- echo. Did you ever wonder on pebbles, stones cast upon a still lake- the ripple effect? Or, a voice upon the water-can have the same effect? Is it the voice, the breath, or? Deeper still- echoes ring?
"If any little word of ours can make one heart the lighter,
If any little song of ours can make one life the brighter-
God help me speak that little word, and take my bit of singing-
And drop it in some lonely vale to set the echoes ringing."
Isn't that the most beautiful thought?
I was quite taken with that lyric, found it in an old antique manuscript, can't even remember where, or how I came upon it. A wonderful creed to live by...hangs in my kitchen, crudely mounted on a Salvation Army find, there by the back door where I wanted always to be able to be reminded of it's message. Truly, there are days when I do not notice it. Shame on me for not noticing enough-the echoes. In my list of favored sites "Food For Thought-When Your Hungry"- the ringing of echoes. I can see enough folks stop in, by the profile view thingamajig...hope they notice the side bar, the offside thoughts...
I do hope that more would comment, but it is enough I suppose-that they are at the very least awakened by the ringing here.
"...am I young enough to believe in revolution, am I strong enough to get down on my knees and pray,and am I high enough on the chain of evolution to respect myself and my brothers and my sisters and perfect myself in my old peculiar way."- Kris Kristofferson (Pilgrim's Progress, what a wisened one...)
Snow day, could not resist the urge to write of echoes...in seeing the snow, feeling it's intense message of "Be alive!"-wrap up the fray, take on the day, come out-come out and play. Yep, here I go...take care-
