Good Day's Work

Happy New Year Celebration

"Derive happiness in oneself from a good day's work,
from illuminating the fog that surrounds us."

Golden sunrise coming:   ...Waiting for the sun. Loving the gold sky. Makes me feel life is all possibilities. Moments for creativity and the sharing of aloha... "aloha & samurai spirits." I just love that. TY!  ...Sky toward Asheville glows color. Just a few beautiful clouds. Clear, clear day.   ...Much too bright to look at straight on. hmmm. Am I talking about the sun... or our dear // (ˆˆ)

An infant crying for the light:
 And with no language but a cry."

By God's hand drawn,
Flashes his shining sword of Light,
And lo, the

Always the Language

"I learned that to be amusing
was not to be frivolous
 and that language – always the language –
was the magic key as much to prose as to poetry."
~ Christopher Hitchens

oh... God... the sky is afire & I'm catching my breath. So beautiful outside! ...As luck would have it, the sun was swallowed by the clouds before it crested. But will share the sky I say my prayers to and wish you an excellent day.

My avocation with my vocation
As my two eyes make one in sight."

is the thing which gives
life its deepest significance."

Being Good

"Early in life—I was two, maybe three—
I developed what I would
call a 'sensitivity to good'
with a
capital G—
what a man should
be doing in this life.
That was
my purpose in life,
I discovered: being good."
~ Aaron Feuerstein

Gold... My ridge glows golden as I wait for sun to crest. Cold. Invigorating. Life-affirming morning.

Sweetness of Life

"By home, we mean a place
in which the mind can settle…
a refuge to which we flee
in the
expectation of finding
calm pleasures,
those soothing
which are the sweetness of life."
