Millefleur Colors

With the first gleam of morning rays,
 the garden is a prism of a thousand hues 
refracted in tiny does of crystal dew,
 a dazzling quilt of millefleur colors 
covering the sleeping flower beds.
~Duane Michals~

Happy 13th Birthday Sarah!

Happy 13 Baby!
I am so proud of the person you are becoming.
You make the world shine.
I love you more than I could ever tell you.
Remember to be true to you in all you do.
The world is yours Miss Sarah.

Your work is to discover your world 
and then with all your heart
 give yourself to it.

A Sacred Manner

And while I stood there
I saw more than I can tell,
and I understood more than I saw;
for I was seeing in a sacred manner
the shapes of things in the spirit,
and the shape of all shapes as they must
live together like one being.
~Black Elk~

Happy Mothers Day

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. 
 She never existed before.  
The woman existed,
 but the mother, never. 
 A mother is something 
absolutely new. 

Happy Mothers Day!
Love them
Hug them
Appreciate them.
It goes faster than you know.

Wild Places

The mind I love must have wild places, 
a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass,
 an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two,
 a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of, 
and paths threaded with flowers
 planted by the mind. 
 ~Katherine Mansfield~

amongst the trees in the Garden, 
but our hearts must be
