The title for today’s post is taken from a poem by Patience Strong , an English poet and writer.
I uncovered a little book of her poems dating back to 1951 recently in a box of my mother’s things
when sorting out the loft. The words of this particular poem resonated with me at this point in time.
” We do not always get the things we wanted most of all – but something else is given in its place.
We leave the road we started on ; we hear another call-and find there is another path to trace.
We think we know what’s best for us, we plot and plan and scheme-to reach the shining goal we have in view-but oftentimes we find we have to dream another dream.
I must admit to being very unsettled since my trip to both Japan and then to Adelaide . I know this
will pass in time as I continue to search for a new purpose and direction.
Today’s outfit is a mixture of items from my closet ,that have featured on the blog previously, just not together and on viewing the results possibly not again.Oh well , win some, loose some.
I must admit to being rather pleased with my red Ara suede boots with the black and white spot tights, they are from several seasons ago and so very comfortable. Sadly the local shoe shop they are from will be closing shortly , no doubt to be replaced with another boring chain store.
