For strength and change

Last night, I finished reading the Reynolds biography of Dorothy L. Sayers, and (no spoilers here, I hope) it ended with her death. She fortuitously wrote her own epitaph, and these words have been comforting me as I face another health issue -- I'm finally scheduled up for a hysterectomy, my real life body put to the knife once more.

"For all things merry, quaint and strange,
For sound and silence, strength and change,
And last, for death, which only gives
Value to every thing that lives."

-- Dorothy L. Sayers

I'd been worrying. Have I left enough behind me? Probably not. You only get back the love you give, and I sometimes fear I haven't given enough. So, universe, I'd better survive this one! I have to stick around to love people more. You win life when you leave people behind who miss you, but who say, "Hey, she lived well."

Anyway. Go get these boots, they're cool.
