being a promise to
being a threat?

Belong



The woods were made for the hunters of dreams,

The brooks for the fishers of song;
To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game
The streams and the woods belong.

Clad with Radiance




There is nothing in the world more beautiful than
the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow.
It is the still ecstasy of nature,
wherein every spray,
every blade of grass,
every spire of reed,
every intricacy of twig,
is clad with radiance.

~ William Sharp ~

Perversity

A catless writer is almost inconceivable.  It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bit the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys.
~ Barbara Holland ~    

This was the perfect quote since I pulled out the school stuff, turned around, and when I turned back, there was Big Buddy, laying on it all.

Majesty

I am in awe of the majesty of trees. 
They are truly our rulers and our guides.
I will follow them to the end of my days.

One Thread


Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

The Right Things


Hope begins in the dark,
the stubborn hope that if you just show up
and try to do the right thing,
the dawn will come.

Unique

We are each gifted in a unique and important way. 
It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.  
~Evelyn Dunbar~

One thing I love about our kids is that they find that special light inside and they shine it so brightly.  I am in awe of how awesome they are!

The Same


Happiness is an attitude.
We either make ourselves
miserable, or happy and strong.
The amount of work is the same.

Vegetables

Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables.  They probably get jet-lagged, just like people.

Morning


I arise in the morning torn between a desire
to improve the world and
a desire to enjoy the world.
This makes it hard to plan the day.

we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.

Journey


If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses,
what might not the heart of man become
in its long journey
toward the stars?

Apart



Love is missing someone whenever you're apart,
but somehow feeling warm inside
because you're close in heart.

Happy New Year

We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
and
its first chapter is
New Year's Day.
