All shall be well

The rain sounds the same as the hiss of the pot where I stir
pasta,

         and after it's done,

I'll watch the Canadian series about the girl who longs
                          
                           to sleep              
                                in a cherry tree                                       
                                                               under silvery moonlight


That's Anne of Green Gables, original storybook girl

In case you didn't know,
. . . all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well

T.S. Eliot told me so

And you know who told him? Julian of Norwich, the mystic. First woman to write a book in the English language. Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love, 1393.

Fifteen more where that one line came from
Divine Love's summer reading

Don't worry. This won't be a regular thing. It's much too much of a pain to muck with spacing on a blog.
