In my teen age years, my friends and I were the definition of paradox. We collectively marched to the beat of a different drummer. Our passion was quoting Gibran and analytical discussions on week-end retreats. We often debated what wild flower best described our nature personality. However, yearly we did carry over our serious intent and made sure our shoes were dyed to the exact color specifications of our prom dresses. Yes, we were the radical pioneers of the present day “drama queens.”
One day it happened, we were in the Poster Shop, and we had an epiphany moment. Hung on the wall, with a background woodsy campfire setting, in bold letters: Absence is to love, as air is to fire, it enkindles the great and diminishes the small…. Author Unknown. Over the years as my friends and I shared both happiness and heartache in our tales of romance, we held fast to this thought.
And now, dear RR members, I am tempted to Google Wikipedia with an evolved definition of enkindle.What do you think?
Enkindle: transitive verb 1.) To set a fiery glow 2.) Greatness in plot, character,
language, and development in a hand held devise.
Enkindle away, RR members.
