All things must pass and love is the bridge.

When Richard returned from Vietnam in 1970, he bought me a copy of "All Things Must Pass" for Christmas. When George Harrison died, it was Richard who called me with the news. Richard died on April 20, 2008. I lit a candle for him this morning.

"But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning."
(Thornton Wilder)

Sorry about your loss, but moved by your lovely tribute with the wonderful Thornton Wilder quote. I plan to read more of your postings and look forward to following your blog.

Thank you all for continuing to stop by and to George for stopping by a first time.

My new/old job is limits my time for blog posting and blog visiting but I plan to continue visiting and posting as time allows.

I sure do enjoy visiting the communities, large and small, that rise up around blogs!
