Late Fragment by Raymond Carver

By Raymond Carver

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.


Those are two of my kitties, Catfish and Little Debbie, asleep like yin and yang.

Blessings, Love & Peace,

I love the poem. I think this is what we all want from life. Even so?

Have a blessed weekend, Marion.

Marion, now you know I don't kow poetry, but this is one I know and have always loved. Isn't it beautiful.

I am laughing my head off at Ignatius starting up the political party of homosexual men. He is so funny, that I seriously read a line and am smirking from ear to ear. What wit.

Love Renee xoxo

I like this poem and I love the pic of your kitties! Aren't sleeping pets sweet!?

Did the storms last night come as far down as you?

Trying to stay drunk on writing along with Raymond. Thanks for the delicious shot. Have a great weekend!

Hi Marion~ I wonder if that's what made Carver's life run all right--he had self love. It's such a wonderful gift to be able to say that. xxox

Marion, isn't it a strange thing that we are born to this earth and yet we all have this universal desire? We are born a fiddlehead, waiting for that other perfect fit. Your cats have certainly found theirs.
much love
