Enjoy Life

 
Slow down and enjoy life. 
 It's not only 
the scenery you miss
 by going to fast - 
you also miss 
the sense of
 where you are going
 and why.
~Eddie Cantor~

What matters is not
 the idea a man holds,
 but the depth at
 which he holds it.

Shift And Drift

The sky, a perfect empty canvas, offers clouds nonetheless. 
They shift and drift and beg interpretation... 
such is the nature of art.

Normal Day

 
Normal day, 
let me be aware of the treasure you are.
 Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
 Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
 Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
 One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, 
or bury my face in the pillow,
 or stretch myself taut, 
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
 more than all the world, 
your return.
 ~Mary Jean Iron~

Tiny Surrenders

 
You do not wake up one morning a bad person.
 It happens by a thousand tiny surrenders

Little Talent

 
It takes a little talent to see clearly
 what lies under one's nose,
 a good deal of it to know
 in which direction 
to point that organ.

Happiness

 
We tend to forget that happiness 
doesn't come as a result of getting
 something we don't have,
 but rather of 
recognizing and appreciating
 what we do have.
