Desiderata

The last time I visited my grandparents I noticed a framed poem--Desiderata--hanging in the kitchen.  It was amazing.  I was immediately taken with it.  The words really moved me.  The calligraphy was lovely, too.
So, later, I found an attractive print online and framed it from my stash of garage sale frames.  And I hung it in my kitchen.  Its a beautiful piece--something to aspire to--and it makes me think of my grandparents--people to aspire to as well.

  1. This was done as a song in the seventies - it was very popular. It's wisdom. I'm glad you discovered it!

    1. My aunt bought a copy to frame recently, too. But, you could print something off the web I am sure.
