Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow. Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

    I have been asked by a granddaughter and her fiance to read at their wedding in October. I know I will read from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, and this is one of the passages I am considering. He expresses truths so eloquently. The photo is lovely.

    A friend sent me one from the Prophet the other day that would be really good if you want me to email it to you.
