Quotes from Magpie in August


“We’ve eaten lots of breakfasts as a family, but this one is the most important to me, and that morning is alive too, sharing space with my guilt.

Strange how trivial things, the details of a single morning in five-thousand and some can so cruelly become the richest, most bittersweet of memories.”

–Magpie Carey

“The sun is shining colorless through layers of drifting clouds. I’m looking for traces of blue within the holes, but I only catch glimpses of a sky silvery white.”

–Magpie Carey

  1. Came back to read it again. Very true what you say about how a single incident or even a single moment can turn into one of our strongest memories.

    Looking for blue behind the gray – what a beautiful picture! Is there anyone who hasn’t done that?
