Our heart survives between hammers,

just as the tongue between the teeth

is still able to praise.

  1. kindness has a power that lifts like no other.


  2. Very well said.


  3. Perhaps if our heart survives because of those rhythmic hammers, our mouth remains pliable because of the words of kindness that we share? Still drinking my coffee..


  4. So much said in so few words.


  5. Love this bit of wisdom, David. 🙂
