Two Ways to Spread Light

By
Real Estate Agent with Pacific Union International CA DRE# 01215160

"There are two way of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

..... Edith Wharton

 

How do you choose to spread your light today? 

 

Today I will strive to be the candle as I go about my day, gathering and sharing property information with a buyer client. On Saturday I'll be the mirror as I volunteer at the San Francisco City Chorus' concert.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - this Saturday I'll be an usher for the concert; sometimes I head up snack/cookie tables (another way for the chorus to raise some funds) but that can be a fattening job; sometimes ticket sales

Hi Barbara Todaro - Edith Wharton's books make for good reading, and this quote of hers that I came across today just spoke to me. Happy Monday to you (and I hope Caleb keeps up with his barbell workouts!)

Good Morning Lottie Kendall 

Sometimes we're the candle and sometimes we're the mirror and other times we get the chance to be both

Lottie,

What a nice post, and this is my favorite quote on the same subject,

 Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.  Buddha

A lovely thought, Lottie. Edith Wharton is one of my all-time favorite authors and I've read and kept all of her books.

Hello Nina Hollander - I like Edith Wharton's books too, perhaps better than Jane Austen's.

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert - candlelight is such a soft, gentle light, isn't it?

Grant Schneider - I'm glad you enjoyed this thought, and I agree with you; we have many ways to share the light.

Lottie Kendall ~ hi Lottie.. oh for sure! I've read all of Jane Austen, but there's nothing like a good Edith Wharton book for me...maybe because they take place in NYC and other places I know well.

I think that's why I relate to Wharton's books, too, Nina Hollander
