But the place which you have selected for your camp,
 though never so rough and grim,
 begins at once to have its attractions,
 and becomes a very centre of civilization to you: 
Home is home,
 be it never so homely.
~ Henry David Thoreau~

Human Condition


Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. 
The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space.
 And intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. 
If you expect to find people who will understand you, 
you will grow murderous with disappointment. 
The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself,
 know what it is that you want, 
 and not let the cattle stand in your way.

So keep your head high, 

keep your chin up,

and most importantly, keep smiling,

 because life's a beautiful thing 

and there's so much to smile about.

Do Not

Do not take anything for granted —
 not one smile or one person
 or one rainbow or one breath,
 or one night in your cozy bed.

As We Are

We don't see things as they are,
 we see them as we are. 
~Anaïs Nin~

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. 
The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices
 and the acceptance of love back in our hearts.
 Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. 
To be consciously aware of it,
 to experience love in ourselves and others,
 is the meaning of life.
 Meaning does not lie in things.
 Meaning lies in us.
~Marianne Williamson~

Happy Birthday Seth

Happy Birthday Seth, 
We Love you!!!
In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber.
 So long as it receives a message of
 beauty, hope, cheer, and courage — so long are you young.
 When the wires are all down and our heart is covered with
 the snow of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, 
then, and only then,
 are you grown old.
 ~Douglas MacArthur~

Keep your thoughts positive
 because your thoughts become your words.
 Keep your words positive 
because your words become your behavior. 
Keep your behavior positive
 because your behavior becomes your habits.
 Keep your habits positive
 because your habits become your values.
 Keep your values positive
 because your values become your destiny.

Happiness is a butterfly, 
which, when pursued,
 is always just beyond your grasp, 
but which, 
if you will sit down quietly, 
may alight upon you.

Flags of Nature

The forests are the flags of nature.  
 They appeal to all and awaken inspiring universal feelings. 
 Enter the forest and the boundaries of nations are forgotten.
  It may be that some time an immortal pine 
will be the flag of a 
united peaceful world.
~ Enos A. Mills ~

Jeweled Balm

Summer is the time when one sheds
 one’s tensions with one’s clothes, 
and the right kind of day is 
jeweled balm for 
the battered spirit.
 A few of those days and
 you can become drunk
 with the belief that
 all’s right with the world. 
~Ada Louise Huxtable~
