for my firefly to remember


History repeats old defeats--
You have a choice. Heed your inner voice.

This fragment for my firefly jar was prompted by Kerry at Real Toads this weekend. Easy to recite; the (significant) challenge is to remember when it matters most.

  6. This is a tantalizing view of the poet's notebook and great words to live by. Thanks for adding to my jar, Marian.

  9. Love it Marian--I have something similar scrawled somewhere--you'll repeat the same lesson over and over unless you learn it. Not nearly as snappy, though. I like your handwriting--it's cool looking.(And legible--always a plus.)
