Symphony for One

It has been a while since I have posted anything to the blog. At first I thought it was pointless but I realized that I needed to thank all of you for your love, support, compassion, friendship and tell you how much it has meant to me. These days are difficult and bittersweet. As I go through Seth’s things I see his smile, his look of concentration, hear his laugh, feel his presence. I don’t know when he wrote this, but I cannot think of a better way to share Seth with all of you:

Symphony for One

To live content with small means:

To seek elegance rather than luxury: and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;

To listen to stars and birds;

To babes and sages, with an open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never.

Let the spiritual grow up through the common;

To choose to get better, never even; to trust a stranger, to keep a promise, to love.

To know G-d.
