Did you not know…

Wiltshire countryside, September 2016

Did you not know

that at the edge of a deep valley

there is an excellent pine tree

growing up straight

in spite of the many years of cold?

Es que no sabías

que al borde del valle

hay un excelente pino

creciendo derecho

a pesar de sufrir el frío

durante tantos años?

Forget it!

To forgive is wisdom, to forget is genius.

And easier.

Because it’s true.

It’s a new world every heart beat.

Joyce Cary

Joyce Cary, born in Northern Ireland  was a prolific novelist whose diverse works drew on his experiences living in Ireland, in Nigeria while working for the British Colonial Service, and in England. His best-known books include Mister Johnson (1939), the story of a young Nigerian’s tragic dealings with the British Colonial regime, and The Horse’s Mouth (1944), about an anarchic painter, which was made into a film written by, and starring, Alec Guinness.


I have never ever read something so true!!! Thank you, Goodreads!  This is just genius! Enjoy!!!
