If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
- CS Lewis, Mere Christianity

But even so, an afternoon sit with coffee and a simple bunch of flowers and the kindness of friends and a kinship in the walking, that all helps in the waiting.
