I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it…. People think pleasing God is all God care about.  But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.
Alice Walker, The Color Purple, 1982

After all, I don’t see why I am always asking for private, individual, selfish miracles when every year there are miracles like white dogwood.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Kahlil Gibran




And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for.  Keep on seeking, and you will find.  Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks, receives.  Everyone who seeks, finds.  And everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

(Luke 11:9-10)

For my new Friend, Konstantine 
He has a lovely blog, wonderful photos, and a beautiful smile.






We need a renaissance of wonder.  We need to renew, in our hearts and in our souls, the deathless dream, the eternal poetry, the perennial sense that life is miracle and magic.
E. Merrill Root

God, despite his casual silence, still exists.  Of that I haven’t a single doubt.
Don Williams, Jr.
(American Novelist and Poet, b.1968)

Today, seems to require two.





In dreams the mind is constantly giving you substitutes just to protect sleep. And the same is happening while you are awake. The mind is giving you substitutes just to protect your sanity; otherwise you will be scattered in fragments.

Perhaps it will seem to you that the sunshine is brighter and that everything has a new charm.  At least, I believe this is always a result of a deep love, and it is a beautiful thing.  And I believe people who think love prevents one from thinking clearly are wrong; for then one thinks very clearly and is more active than before.  And love is something eternal–the aspect may change, but not the essence.  There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning.  The lamp was there and it was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function.  And love makes one calmer about many things, and in that way, one is more fit for one’s work.
