A Few words to Remember

K. is in London today.  She is visting Westminster  Abbey (Poet's corner), Big Ben, the Parliment, and White Hall All Hallow's Church.
I found a few lines for you to reflect on as you remember these places, my love.

So nigh is graduer to our dust,
So near to God is man,
When duty whispers low, Thou must,
The youth, replies,  I can.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson, from "Voluntaries"

 As you walk in the footsteps of those who have gone before may your heart hear the must, and may you ever reply, I can.
