Mama warned, “Do not pawn your aspirations when the world lays you low. Do not curse when your loved one rushes away. Do not fall like a meteor into a lonely meadow when bad tidings overwhelm. Remember a new day starts after midnight. A new tomorrow full of sweet beginnings and promises.”

I wonder at the midnight sky of an inky velvet sea on which the moon rides full of dreams. So full of my dreams. Keep your eyes on Hesperus of hopes, your mind pure, work like a demon, love her truly. And always have fun chasing demons away.

Such a wonderful reminder from Mama in your story, Margarida. Can I copy this: “Do not pawn your aspirations when the world lays you low. Do not curse when your loved one rushes away. Do not fall like a meteor into a lonely meadow when bad tidings overwhelm you. Remember a new day starts after midnight. A new tomorrow full of sweet beginnings and promises.” – I will put it on my notes, as a reminder to myself. 

I’ve been going through so many downs in my life right now. I need to take that advice to heart and keep them in mind. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Margarida. Nicely done.

I love the line, “an inky velvet sea where the moon rides full of dreams.” What’s the meaning of the phrase, “work like a demon”? A lovely story.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
