day 7 {best book of 2014}

Mine wasn't a book I read but one I created...a vision book. 
Creating this book under Hannah Marcotti's guidance 
took me on quite a journey this year for which I'm so deeply grateful.

This wordless page prompt led me to this poem:

“Love After Love"

The time will come 
when, with elation 
you will greet yourself arriving 
at your own door, in your own mirror 
and each will smile at the other's welcome, 

and say, sit here. Eat. 
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart 
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you 

all your life, whom you ignored 
for another, who knows you by heart. 
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, 

the photographs, the desperate notes, 
peel your own image from the mirror. 
Sit. Feast on your life.”

~ Derek Walcott
