(Yet Another) Random Quote Saturday

"Did the ghosts of friends and family come and serve as my muses? Aren't ghosts merely delusions in grief? I know now that these questions are meaningless and the answer is absolute. What are ghosts if not the hope that love continues beyond our ordinary senses? If ghosts are delusions, then let me be deluded. Let me believe in the limitlessness of love, the beauty of contradictions, the miracle that is an ordinary part of life."

~~Amy Tan, "The Ghosts of My Imagination," The Opposite of Fate

  2. This reminds me of a line in a poem I wrote for a competition last week

    'I encourage my children to read because.....
    ....It opens their mind to that which is unseen'

    Let me be deluded too ;-)
