It's Resiliency That Really Matters


"All of us get knocked down, but it's resiliency that really matters.
 All of us do well when things are going well,
but the thing that distinguishes athletes
is the ability to do well in times of great stress,
urgency, and pressure."
Roger Staubach

Other People's Reality


Birmingham, Alabama

"The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality,
and eventually in one's own."

Surprise: This surreal sunset to pause and celebrate. A moment where life expands and gratitude lingers like colors on the horizon.

Heal Your Life


"You have the power to heal your life,
and you need to know that.
We think so often that we are helpless,
but we're not.
We always have the power of our minds…
Claim and consciously use your power.”
Louise Hay

The Chance To Be Extraordinary


"We must overcome the notion that we must be regular... 
It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary
and leads you to the mediocre."
Uta Hagen

Oh, the sky
the sweet morning sky
a serving of love
a feast of an extraordinary life.

Clear and Radiant Glory

"The Sun. The bright Sun, that brings back, not light alone,
but new life, and hope, and freshness
to man-burst upon the crowded city
in clear and radiant glory."

Endured, Never Expended


James Wolf, RIP

"There are some griefs so loud
They could bring down the sky,
And there are griefs so still
None knows how deep they lie,
Endured, never expended."
~May Sarton, A Durable Fire, 1972

"Perhaps they are not stars but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy." Eskimo Legend

Help Others To Rise

I am breathing in the sky after a satisfying Saturday working at the facility...

 "Love one another
and help others to rise to the higher levels,
simply by pouring out love.
Love is infectious
and the greatest healing energy."
Sai Baba

And I am waiting for the sunset with a beer, watching the billowy clouds floating above me, and those two birds on the wire.

This moment is punctuation to the nonstop day of movement and hands. Just a quiet chance for me to be grateful, alone, and smiling at the sky.

The sky is magnificent. The sounds and colors of Spring are everywhere. I am certainly enjoying myself, up on the roof...

Something New Trying To Be Born

 "Everywhere we look at present
we see something new trying to be born."
Eric Hoffer

I am having lots of fun as the Easter bunny this morning, not the plumeria in my hair, delivering goodies to the residents. Music is playing off my cart and I am going in-room to each one with personalized gifts and cards and some snacks...
