Love

Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm,
but willing to draw blood in its defense.

Trust your own instinct.  
Your mistakes might 
as well be your own,
 instead of 
someone else's.

The Road

Hope is like a road in the country; 
there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, 
the road comes into existence.

Daydream


A daydream is a meal 
at which images are eaten.
  Some of us are gourmets, 
some gourmands,
 and a good many 
take their images 
precooked out of a can
 and swallow them down whole,
 absent-mindedly 
and with little relish.  
~W.H. Auden~

Our Own Special Light

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

I am One


I am only one, 
but I am one.  
I cannot do everything, 
but I can do something. 
 And I will not let what I cannot do
 interfere with what
 I can do.  
~Edward Everett Hale~

Different Speeds


Common sense and
 a sense of humor are the same thing, 
moving at different speeds. 
 A sense of humor 
is just common sense, 
dancing.  
~William James~

Free Exchange

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples
 then you and I will still each have one apple. 
But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, 
then each of us will have two ideas.”
~George Bernard Shaw~

The Ones Who Cause It


We create our own unhappiness. 
The purpose of suffering is 
to help us understand 
we are
 the ones who cause it.

Calm


The cyclone derives
 its powers from
 a calm center.  
So does a person.

The Obstacle and Oops

The obstacle is the path.

A note:
My apologies that Tuesday's blog got posted at 75% Hippie due to my extreme spazness!
Here is Tuesday's blog and it really does prove that sometimes,
The obstacle is the path!

But, always keep building one and never lose your faith in life.

Nature More

 
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~ Lord Byron~

Nobody

 
Be grateful for luck. 
 Pay the thunder no mind 
- listen to the birds. 
 And don't hate nobody.

Appreciation

If a fellow isn't thankful for what he's got, 
he isn't likely to be thankful for what he's going to get.  
~Frank A. Clark~

Being thankful is so much more than words.
Being thankful is about action.

Beautiful Things

Keep your faith in beautiful things;
in the sun when it is hidden,
in the Spring when it is gone.
