Carpe Diem...

Seize The Day. 

"O me, O life of the questions of these recurring.
Of endless trains of the faithless.
Of cities filled with the foolish.
What good amid these, O me, O life?

Answer: That you are here.
Life exists and identity.
That the powerful play goes on,
and you may contribute a verse." 

~~Walt Whitman~~



  1. Thanks for sharing. It was just the right thing for me to read this evening.

    1. Susan, I'm glad you liked it. I found this in a cupboard I was cleaning out today. I had saved it from somewhere.

  2. Especially love those last two lines... very inspiring.

    1. Rettakat: They remind me of where I fit in the grand scheme of things. It's a way not to get lost when I start feeling like a vapor trail.

  3. Nice post, Karen. :-)Whitman was a genius with words.

    Thanks for stopping by and for your very helpful comment, Karen.

    And I hope you'll join us sometime for Weekend Writing Warriors. A new sign up goes up every Monday morning at Then on Sundays we post 8 sentences of anything we've written or that we're working on, pubbed or unpubbed. It's a nice way to network and to get exposure too. :-)

    Once again, thanks!
