There are so many talented artists, poets, and writers in the blog world. We discover a blog we really like and there are links to another, and another, that we also like. The reading could go on almost forever.
One blog I have linked here on Efficient Agony is "Begin Again". It is written by "Suz". I wish I knew her complete name. Her profile picture shows a woman with a smile that makes me say, "This is a person of kindness, and grace. This is someone, just from her photo, I'd like to know.
And from going back to the beginning of her writings on "Begin Again" I'm convinced that Suz is a kind and gentle soul. She illustrates and provides, through her writing, how we should approach our lives from day to day, learning anew about other people, our surroundings, and ourselves.
This past week Suz wrote about a series of difficult times she and her family were experiencing in losing friends and loved ones. Outside her home one day, she saw a puddle of rainwater in the grass in the shape of a heart, and it gave her respite and solace from the sadness she was experiencing. She photographed it and posted it on her blog. I wanted to leave a comment on her blog, and suddenly wrote a short poem to her about her photo and her sentiments.
She was kind enough to allow me to post her photo and my comment here. Visit her site that is linked here. I'm certain you'll find something uplifting in her stories and poetry. I do. And I'm grateful for having discovered her writings.
