A gathering place for readers, writers, and other advocates for a more just world

About the time I push the “publish” button, I will be one year older. Let’s toast to another great year!
And here’s a gift to you, Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem on loving those close to us (and at least from my perspective, an answer to loving those we call different, even enemy).


Comments on: "It’s My Birthday and I’d Love to Celebrate With You!" (4)

  1. Nicole Garcia - your speech student said:

    Hope you had a great birthday Joyce 🙂


  2. A very happy birthday to you young lady!

    My experience is that people generally live up or down to the expectations we have for them. It is as the poem states,loving people is a “high inducement” for people to ripen!

    Lovely poem!
