Trying to believe


I have to believe
That life has meaning
That I am useful here
That I make small differences

I have to believe
That I need to stay here
For some time
That all this teaches me 

Excerpt from Ann Thorp’s Belief (set to music as the litany from Howard Goodall’s Eternal Light: a requiem)

    You have touched the lives of people in ways that you probably can’t imagine. These words do not come with any burden of responsibility to do so in the future. I like to believe that you will be safe because your blog has become part of my life and given it meaning.
