sweetness a la postcard

You know that feeling you have when you're just not ready for things to go back to normal? When  you don't want the fun to end, and yet it has to...coming back from my lovey weekend away has been hard. So, it was sweet to find a postcard in my mailbox upon my return. My thoughtful friend, Magdalena, shared this lovely bit from Rilke:

How could we be capable of forgetting the old myths that stand at the threshold of all mankind, myths of dragons transforming themselves at the last moment into princesses? Perhaps all dragons in our lives are really princesses just waiting to see us just once being beautiful and courageous" --R.M. Rilke, from "Letters to a Young Poet"

It's the little things, no?
