Definitely a thought provoking quote!

I am late here and catching up as usual. The previous post on the bird sanctuary was very sad to read - so pleased you provided an update at the end..

Tears for Souvenirs.

Riot Kitty: Yes, very. The cryptic is unfailingly mysterious.

Grannymar: Journey Without Maps is singularly touching for its threatened foreboding page after page. a foreboding of a different kind.

Meena Venkataraman: Hmmm!

VioletSky: Mystery in what is left unsaid in a cryptic context.

Dr. Antony: Essentially Graham Greene looks at tears in a different perspective, reaching its genesis in a screaming observation.

Blommer22: Very.

Karen: Thank you. Greene is right on with his observation.

Tony: Absolutely, Tony. Very well said.

poignant and poetic. but does it mean we dont appreciate the good until its lost?

Anil P said...

Ms.N: More than not appreciating the good until it is lost, it's rather a case of longing for the good once it has passed, more so if visited by bad times.
