Where you dwell

Every day you either 
see a scar or courage. 
 Where you dwell 
will define your struggle.

The Little Voice

Courage doesn't always roar.  
Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says 
I'll try again tomorrow.

From Fools

God has cared for these trees, 
saved them from drought, disease, avalanches,
 and a thousand tempests and floods. 
But he cannot save them from fools.

No Winter

If we had no winter, 
the spring would not be so pleasant; 
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, 
prosperity would not be so welcome.

Better Proposition

That some good can be 
derived from every event
 is a better proposition 
than that everything 
happens for the best, 
which it assuredly does not.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

One day our descendants will think it incredible 
that we paid so much attention to things like 
the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender
 instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings.  
~Franklin Thomas~

A man finds room in 
the few square inches of his face
 for the traits of all his ancestors;
 for the expression of all his history,
 and his wants.

Love Them More

Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals "love" them.  
But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, 
love them more.

Subtle Song

The trees are whispering to me, reminding me of my roots, and my reach
... shhhhhh... can you hear them? 
Selflessly sharing their subtle song.

Life and Flames

Among the notable things about fire is that it also requires oxygen to burn - 
exactly like its enemy, life.  
Thereby are life and flames so often compared.

Nature's Peace

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, 
and the storms their energy, 
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  
~John Muir~

A Heart That Never Hardens

Have a heart that never hardens, 
a temper that never tires, 
a touch that never hurts.

Snow Is Snowy

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes.
Smooth and clean and frosty white,
The world looks good enough to bite.
That's the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Snow is snowy when it's snowing,
I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going.
~Ogden Nash~

For Potential

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, 
room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. 
 Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... 
not looking for flaws, but for potential.  
~Ellen Goodman~
