A Quiet Day

Some days there are no words.
So, I share my all-time favorite photo of my dad from 1979.
I also share my favorite Emily Dickinson poem.

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.


  1. hi jenny stevning . . . i love emily dickinson's words - what a life she lived inside - these are beautiful and your dad's picture... well there he is 30 years ago inside a moment of joy. how good is all of that put together!!!! steven

  2. Thank you, Steven, for pointing that out.

  3. How beautifully that photo of your Dad captures a moment. No wonder it's a favourite.
    What a lovely ED poem to accompany the photo too.
