There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
I adore Janet Frame, and have a copy of her "Pocket Mirror" here on my desk as we "speak". This quote is wonderful, and I actually have it on my sidebar!
How cool is that? Here's hoping we can 'keep our heads above water'!
I'm thinking it means that even if we sink now and then, we still fight back up to the surface again. Good quote, thanks for sharing.
