Fling off thy sadness!

Your ancient gladness!

have either found the true meaning of happiness
or have gone stark raving mad.

Happy Fat Tuesday ( on Wednesday)



It has been a year of weekly celebrations for us!
It all started with Fat Tuesday last year.
It has been a great year of celebrating everything from
chip and dip day
to
Pirate Day.
I know the next year of celebrations will be just as much fun.
Here is a look at our Fat Tuesday celebration yesterday!


The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance;
the wise grows it under his feet.

The flowers of late winter and early spring
occupy places in our hearts
well out of proportion to their size.

Be Silly


Most of us don't need
a psychiatric therapist
as much as a
friend to be
silly with.

Siblinghood


I don't believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers.  
 It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage.  
Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.

Love


Sometimes we make love with our eyes.

Sometimes we make love with our hands.
Sometimes we make love with our bodies.
Always we make love with our hearts.

Reach For The Impossible

Every night I see the moon and every night it reminds me to reach for what seems impossible.
Sometimes, it shows itself during the day, as if it knows I need the reminder.

If I Had $1000000
If I Had $1000000
I'd buy you a monkey
haven't you always wanted
a monkey?

Connected

I'll tell you what hermits realize. 
If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, 
you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything.

our one and only home,
and to the life this earth sustains;

Mirror



The future is an opaque mirror.
Anyone who tries to look into it sees
nothing but the dim outlines
of an old and worried face.

Perspective

Look at your feet.
You are standing in the sky.
When we think of the sky,
we tend to look up,

but the sky actually
begins at the earth.

Ridicule and Deformity

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.  Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all.  But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself."
~  William Blake, 1799, The Letters ~
