The Pony

By Roger Desmarais:

There is a lovely wisdom contained in old phrases about life created by the elderly who have lived much of their lives and found much to be wanting—but also found much to be gained by searching and always being open to new beginnings and surprise presents in what is presented. Shared, sometimes, in rare and precious words of wisdom gleaned from the environment and translated into a life worth living. It is good to revisit such wisdom in the denouement of our own lives and worlds by listening to the sound bites of gentle wisdom that do not come from our cell phones or iPads but from the hearts of our loved ones.
