There is nothing so cold as a lamp
without a flame, for warmth and light,
without a wick to deliver the fuel,
without fuel to feed it...
...unless it is a
soul without faith to warm and light it,
without hope to carry the fuel,
without love to feed it.

Went over to link with willow and found out I missed the ball. Boo Hoo Hoo. But it sounded wonderful.
Miss Margaret and Mr. Tom will make sure we get there next year. All those folks and friends we made last year and all the wine and food we missed. So sad.
The winds of old age keep blowing our flames out.
Got to stay on watch.
