are new creations
which in our 
landscapes appear..
A new attention
on our walks..
Surprises declare:
see my difference
from dreary
Yet that familiar
lodged in memory
were once strangers
in our midst

“Your beloved and your friends were once strangers. Somehow at a particular time, they came from the distance toward your life. Their arrival seemed so accidental and contingent. Now your life is unimaginable without them. Similarly, your identity and vision are composed of a certain constellation of ideas and feelings that surfaced from the depths of the distance within you. To lose these now would be to lose yourself.” 
― John O'DonohueAnam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
