I don't want to give up anymore.
 I want to be strong and stand for what I think
 even in the face of those
most spiteful.

Be yourself;
 no base imitator of another, 
 but your best self.
 There is something which you can do better than another.
 Listen to the inward voice and bravely obey that.  
Do the things at which you are great, 
not what you were never made for.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Happy Birthday Miss Sarah!!!!

Happy Birthday
Miss Sarah!
You are such a blessing to me
every single day.
You have a way of lighting
up any room you walk in to.
The compassion and grace
that you have never stops
amazing me.
Thank you for being true
to who you are,
Always hold onto that
and know how much
you are loved.

Wishing you always...
Walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain
And tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.
~Irish Blessing~

Throw Yourself

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. 
The only way that we can grow is if we change.
 The only way that we can change is if we learn. 
The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. 
And the only way that we can become exposed is
 if we throw ourselves out into the open. 
Do it. Throw yourself

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, 
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you,
 if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand,
 rejoice, for your soul is alive.

Draws and Holds Us

Rivers are magnets for the imagination, 
for conscious pondering
and subconscious dreams, thrills, fears.
  People stare into the
moving water,
 as they are when gazing into a fire.
What is it that draws and holds us?
 The rivers' reflections of
our lives and experiences 
are endless . . .

The love of Wilderness is more 
than a hunger for what is always beyond reach;
 it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth,
 the earth which bore us and sustains us,
 the only paradise we shall ever know,
 the only paradise we ever need,
 if only we had the eyes to see ...
  No, wilderness is not a luxury
 but a necessity of the human spirit, 
as vital to our lives as 
water and good bread.
~ Edward Abbey~

 Sometimes I have to stand on my head 
to see things as they are,
 when the world seems so upside-down
 that this is the only position
 in which anything makes sense.
