Thought for the Day

. . . This moment of surprising yourself with your own words
[. . .] is at the heart of poetry as healer. 

Surprise is a kind of revelation, 
resurrection and rebirth — a creative, joyful,
luminous, physical experience of being disinterred from limitation.*
~ John Fox, Poetry Therapist
