Setting an Example

"Setting an example
is not the main means of influencing another,
it is the only means."
Albert Einstein

This moment, this sun-filled thought:
The power inside of me to make a difference
just by being as strong and loving as I can be.

Pleasure Giving Pleasure

"The essence of all art
 is having pleasure giving pleasure."
~ Mikhail Baryshnikov

I will create what moves my spirit.
I will share that light.
That eternal circle of Giving:
Sharing and giving. 

Keep creating...

Look Up

"Look up, there are no limits."
~ Japanese Proverb

The possibilities, dear one,
are as endless as the open sky,
as glorious as the feelings 
gifted by this cresting sun.

Achieve! Achieve!

  "Think of yourself as on the threshold
of unparalleled success.
A whole clear, glorious life lies before you.
Achieve! Achieve!"
Andrew Carnegie

What excitement!
How the horizon expands with my dreams.
The heavy peace,
the swirling clouds,
the sounds of urgent birds.
And the clarity of this hope-full sky.

Fill Your Heart

"Fill your heart with as much love as you can,
and don't hold it in."
~ Carl Perkins

The interesting thing about unconditional love, I have learned:
The more you give, the more you have.

Keep a Lamp Burning

 "If we want a love message to be heard,
 it has got to be sent out.
To keep a lamp burning,
we have to keep putting oil in it."
Mother Teresa

Hello, sunshine. Hello!

This Mother Teresa quote reminds me of the song "Dream Baby Dream" by the band Suicide, written by its members Martin Rev and Alan Vega. 

"Come on and open up your heart."

Here is the Bruce Springsteen cover, unforgettable live:

Sound Beginning

"A life without purpose is a languid,
drifting thing;
Every day we ought to review our purpose,
saying to ourselves: This day let me make a sound
 for what we have hitherto done is naught!"
