    yes    yes        because at first sorrow can seem so isolating

    'the tender gravity of kindness'   contains the seed of healing

    once you see the 'size of the cloth', you understand that kindness

    (to the starving or tortured) contains the seed of hope

    where food and rest are the tender gravity necessary for change

    so the mirrors may someday all reflect the region of kindness;

    (a gift everyone can afford and that all creatures understand)
