Excellent Schoolmasters

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, 
the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, 
and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

Tiny Pushes

I long to accomplish great and noble tasks,
 but it is my chief duty to 
accomplish humble tasks
 as though they were great and noble. 
 The world is moved along, 
not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes,
 but also by the aggregate 
of the tiny pushes of 
each honest worker.

Always Keep Building

Sometimes you must cross a bridge and other times you need to burn it. 
But, always keep building one and never lose your faith in life.

Sphere of Activity

The pursuit of 
truth and beauty 
is a sphere of activity 
in which we are 
permitted to remain 
children all our lives.

Pride 2013

Why is it that,
 as a culture,
 we are more comfortable seeing
 two men holding guns 
than holding hands?

1000th Post

We have a desire to change the world. 
We are trying to live lives of compassion.
We reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as we can.
We try to affect change through positive action.
But most of all, we are changing the world through our children, our earth warriors.
We are teaching them the value of nature,
The value of peace,
and the value of love.

We hope you have enjoyed the last 1000 days of love, life, and peace.
We have enjoyed letting our hippie hearts soar!

Water & Air

Water and air, 
the two essential fluids
 on which all life depends,
have become 
global garbage cans.

Celestial Symphonies

I hear the wind among the trees
Playing the celestial symphonies;
I see the branches downward bent,
Like keys of some great instrument.

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.

Hieroglyphics Of Angels

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.  
They are the hieroglyphics of angels, 
loved by all men for the beauty of their character, 
though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.

one never has to look far 
to see the campfires 
of gentle people.
