Day Two -- Three Day Quote Challenge

Thanks to Murder By Death for the invitation to play.


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. (see above)

2. Publish a quote on 3 consecutive days on your blog. The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires.

3. Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavour.


This may be bleak, but I'm sharing it anyway. because it's beautiful.  And every time I see it, it makes me think:  What can I do right now to help someone, somewhere in some small way?


"i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?
it answered
