The Magic of Words
Some people have the gift of taking words
and transporting us to other places
reaching into our hearts and revealing
One such person was Merle Shain,
who was featured in the February 1989 issue
"Merle Shain has been credited with having
insights as sharp as finely cut crystal. One
wonders if she has not been inspired by the
so many have the richness of treasures long
stored in trunks or the vivacity of a newly
curator, Merle takes pleasure in finding and
displaying her collectibles.
" We can talk of give and take,
of what one must do if one wants love,
but the hardest thing of all is to see
other persons as they really are,
and love them for themselves, and
understand that hearts cannot be
demanded as a tithe...and one does not
earn a lover's wage by giving love to
oneself, only by giving it to another".
Learning how to see ourselves and others
in a kinder, gentler light, learning how to
see life not so much as a box but as a river,
learning how to juggle your own frailties
and those of others with equal care,
learning that helping someone love themselves
is a far better way to get love for yourself
than demanding that they love you...."
Her words, though, are kept for us to
read and to treasure in her works.
