salt water -
 sweat, tears, or the sea.

Life Storms

We all have life storms, 
and when we get the rough times and we recover from them, 
we should celebrate that we got through it. 
No matter how bad it may seem, 
there's always something beautiful that you can find. 
~Mattie Stepanek~

Glance of the Eye

An eye can threaten like a loaded and leveled gun, 
or it can insult like hissing or kicking;
 or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness,
 it can make the heart dance for joy.... 
One of the most wonderful things
 in nature is a glance of the eye;
 it transcends speech; 
it is the bodily symbol
 of identity.  
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Greet It

Crack in Everything

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.

That's how the light gets in.

The Cloud

I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die....

All My Life

All my life I had been looking for something, 
and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. 
 I accepted their answers too, 
though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory.  
I was na├»ve. 
 I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, 
and only I, could answer.  
It took me a long time 
and much painful boomeranging of my expectations 
to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: 
 that I am nobody but myself.  
~Ralph Ellison, "Battle Royal"~

A friend will remind you
 that assumptions born of malice
 are better dealt with
 by gleefully sticking

The Great Door

As you sit on the hillside, or lie prone under the trees of the forest, or sprawl wet-legged by a mountain stream, the great door, that does not look like a door, opens.

People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace.
 They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people,
 hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. 
The irony is the only place
 they ever needed to search 
was within.
~Ramona L. Anderson~
