Who has performed heroic deeds

Make memory a blessing

GardenofmemoryIf ever we see those gardens again... / Francesca's crewel work; seen through tears

"The trick is making memory a blessing,
To learn by loss the cool subtraction of desire,
Of wanting nothing more than what has been,
To know the past forever lost, yet seeing
Behind the wall a garden still in blossom."

~ an excerpt of The Lost Garden by Dana Gioia
