What a beautiful poem..."a drumbeat to repair the chaos." Congratulations on a lovely piece and happy New Year.

Linda Fraser

Paying attention to the little details adds so much beauty to our lives. Thank you for the reminder, both in the preamble and in the poem. There is so much life between the cracks. This poem has a happy perspective for the future. I like the breath of confidence expressed here! Have a most wonderful New Year Julie, filled with opportunities for self expression and also filled with love!


Oh like a prayer. Finding paradise in rickety beauty.

Happy New Year Julie.


My response to the photo was the same as
yours in that this was a holy place where
more kindness and charity is demonstrated
between the cracks than on the polished floor boards. Your photo is lovely imbued with happiness and joy.Happy New Year!

I love this, Julie.

My mind immediately turned to Leonard Cohen's "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."

Paradise is here.
In what is broken.
Breathe and Look.
Paradise is here.

Happy New Year, from Paradise to Paradise!


Wabi Sabi. Imperfect holds the beauty. Very nice!

The drumbeat to repair the chaos - quite lovely. Have a wonderful new year!

So lovely...beauty is in the small, unnoticed things. Yes, it can be found anywhere..like in your poem!


I often have to remind myself that the dirt won't hurt...
