Thin Ice

It's a strange world of language 
in which skating on thin ice 
can get you into hot water.

Happy Thanksgiving


I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. 
I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, 
we had an enormous feast, 
and then I killed them and took their land.
~ Jon Stewart ~

Happy Thanksgiving
Love

From the Heart

 
He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.

The Highest Appreciation

As we express our gratitude, 
we must never forget that the highest appreciation 
is not to utter words, 
but to live by them.

New Day

                             

                                I welcome this new day. 
          It is a gift to me, a new creation, a promise of resurrection.
       Greetings to the Four Realms, the Goddesses and Gods, 
                              and the Kindred of Yore.
           I salute the Sun, the Earth, the Seas, and the Sky.
                 I am thankful for being alive this morning. 
               Thankful for the sleep that has refreshed me.
                      May my hands do the good work.
                           May my eyes see the truth.
                         May I speak compassionately.
                May I make the world a better place this day.
                                          Awen.

Saving Thanks

I give it each day for the blessings in my life.

Action

 
We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. 
 Action always generates inspiration.  
Inspiration seldom generates action.

Who

 
Who is wise?  He that learns from everyone. 
 Who is powerful?  He that governs his passions. 
 Who is rich?  He that is content. 
 Who is that? 
 Nobody.

everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

More Alive

The closer one looks

 
Our dreams disturb us because 
they refuse to pander to our fondest notions of ourselves.  
The closer one looks, the more they seem to
 insist upon a challenging proposition:
 You must live truthfully.  Right now.  And always. 
 Few forces in life present, with an equal sense of inevitability, 
the bare-knuckle facts of who we are, 
and the demands of what we might become.  
~Marc Ian Barasch~

Lucky

I count myself lucky, 
having long ago won a lottery 
paid to me in seven sunrises a week for life.

I am Free


I am free, no matter what rules surround me. 
If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them;
 if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. 
I am free because I know that I alone 
am morally responsible for 
everything I do.
~Heinlein~

Laughter

You can't deny laughter; 
when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair 
and stays as long as it wants.

We are supposed to work it.

Inconvenience


If you break your neck, 
if you have nothing to eat,
 if your house is on fire, 
then you got a problem. 
 Everything else is inconvenience.
