Specials for Weekend 3.10.23

Perhaps the most beautiful thing about this world we share is that some day it will be gone. Sure, we will be gone, each of us, one at a time, but so will this planet, and so we are blessed with the opportunity to cherish it, here and now. It’s not too much to say there is a joy in mourning the way people and things pass from the world, it’s the source of joy, because joy is a kind of gratitude. Thanks to everyone who has helped me remember this.

This earth will grow cold,

a star among stars

and one of the smallest,

a gilded mote on blue velvet—

I mean this, our great earth.

This earth will grow cold one day,

not like a block of ice

or a dead cloud even

but like an empty walnut it will roll along

in pitch-black space . . .

You must grieve for this right now

—you have to feel this sorrow now—

for the world must be loved this much

if you’re going to say “I lived”. . .

–Nazim Hilmet
