Happy Halloween / Samhain

 
A year of beauty. A year of plenty.
A year of planting. A year of harvest.
A year of forests. A year of healing.
A year of vision. A year of passion.
A year of rebirth.

This year may we renew the earth.
This year may we renew the earth.

Let it begin with each step we take.
And let it begin with each change we make.
And let it begin with each chain we break.
And let it begin every time we awake.

Autumnal Face

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.

of things.

Pumpkin Love

Yesterday was time for the annual butchering of pumpkins!
A little crazy, a little gross, a little evil.
A LOT of fun!

Truly Live


It is only when we are aware of the earth
 and of the earth as poetry 
that we truly live.

Miss Susan,
Thank you for being in my life.
You are the Best Friend anyone

You are my heart and soul.
I Love You My
Beautiful Kind Lady.

 The greatest gift that you can give to others
 is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.

Bird


A bird does not sing because it has an answer.
  It sings because it has a song.

The dance of the palm trees, 
the oceans calling, 
the first rays of sun and heaven is here.

Had You Known


Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted 
but getting what you have, 
which once you have got it 
you may be smart enough to see
 is what you would have wanted 
had you known.

A Creation Of Our Mind


What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, 
and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: 
Our life is the creation of our mind.

Give and Take


Give and Take...
For to the bee a flower is a fountain if life
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love
And to both, bee and flower,
the giving and the receiving 
is a need and an ecstasy.
 ~ Kahlil Gibran~

Be Someone

Be someone who heals instead of hurts.
Be someone who loves instead of hates.
Be someone who gives instead of takes.
Be someone your children would want to be.

Real Power


Respect your efforts, 
respect yourself.  
Self-respect leads 
to self-discipline. 
 When you have both
 firmly under your belt, 
that's real power.

Unique Existence

It takes a great deal of courage to live according to your principles
 and the values that are behind them,
and to tolerate the pain, the isolation, 
and the anxiety of being different from other people,
of being creative, of living a unique existence; the courage to face death with equanimity.
To stand by one's beliefs is part of that, too.
It takes courage to stand behind one's beliefs
when they run counter to a society or a group or pressures from other people.

Love Everybody


You gotta love everybody, make 'em feel good about themselves
You gotta love everybody, make 'em feel good about themselves
You Got To! 
 Love everybody tonight!
You gotta love everybody tonight!
You gotta love everybody, 
make 'em feel good about themselves

Alllllllright!

Shine


Meditate.  
Live purely. 
 Be quiet. 
 Do your work with mastery. 
 Like the moon, 
come out from behind the clouds! 
 Shine.

Mosaic


Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting 
and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Opposing Miseries

 
Bittersweet October.  
The mellow, 
messy,
 leaf-kicking, 
perfect pause
between the opposing 
miseries of 
summer and winter.

Happy 2nd Anniversary!


Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of Happy Hippie Heart.
This blog has become an outlet for us to keep us from being too dark.
It forces us to look outside of our heads and find the beauty, the funky, and the peaceful.
Thank you so much for your kind words, your love, and your support.
Our hope is that the blog makes you smile and makes you appreciate life.
From the bottom of our happy hippie hearts,
THANK YOU!

Thus It Begins

 It's time for witches, zombies, and ghouls.
Squeals, screams, and cackling.
I love October.

Beautiful Tomorrow

Look not at the days gone by
 with a forlorn heart.  
They were simply the dots 
we can now connect with our present, 
to help us draw the outline
 of a beautiful tomorrow.

Pumpkin Season

Oh how we love pumpkin season.  
You did know this gourd-ish squash has its own season, right?  
Winter, Spring, Summer, Pumpkin.... 
We anxiously anticipate it every year.

Speak ~Sarah Jones~

Speak  
Speak of an aim that they dream of
Speak  of a dream that can't be done
speak of love and you have won 
speak of the world you wanna see and
speak of this and that and for all you see
speak and you will see.
~Sarah Jones~

Thanks Happy Hippie Heart  and what they let me see!
