May my meditation be pleasing to Him, for I rejoice in the Lord.

Moving on

Today I can relate to Edward FitzGerald's translation of the Rubáiyát of Omar.  This is a Persian poem written over a thousand years ago, but still so poignaant about how quickly life moves.  It's here, it's gone, and nothing can change that.  

"The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it."

We are moving out of our apartment tand I am so infinitely happy to be moving with Allen instead of away from him.  Soon we will be in our new keeps moving on.
