Thoughts while beach-combing

Just as we sift and select what we find on the beach, so it is with our innermost thoughts that we share.

Words on Feeling Safe by George Elliot

Keeping what is worth keeping

Oh the comfort of feeling safe
with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts,
nor measure words,
but to pour them all out
just as chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand
will take and sift them,
keeping what is worth keeping
and with a breath of kindness,
blow the rest away.
