“I opened the drawer of my little desk and a single letter fell out, a letter from my mother, written in pencil, one of her last, with unfinished words and an implicit sense of her departure. It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window… or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed… or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses.”

— Letters From Colette

    Just because we’re not commenting does not mean we are not reading. I really appreciated this quote. My mom died a year ago. Every time I see a rose bloom in my garden I think of her. Thanks for you blog.
