Today…if I had nothing else to do I would jump in the car and drive West. I would stop every hour or so and take a photograph. Then, before turning back toward home, I would make copies and mail them to myself as postcards.

What would you do on whim?

My muse doesn’t speak to me in words. She is there in the movement in my heart. She is in the rustle of the leaves and the sound of the rain. She is there in the spark of life in every being. I can see her. She is easy to ignore. Because she doesn’t shout ┬áto me to STOP, I often forget she’s there. But she is not weak, just patient. She shows me what she wants me to see when I my mind is quiet, even for a moment. When I remember to expect her, she is there in mind’s eye, waiting with her gifts.

Where you invest your love, you invest your life.

Mumford & Sons, Awake My Soul

But men labor under a mistake. The better part of a man is soon plowed into the soil for compost. By a seeming fate, commonly called necessity, they are employed…laying up treasures which moth and rust will corrupt and thieves break through through and steal. It is a fool’s life, as they will find when they get to the end of it, if not before.

from Walden by Henry David Thoreau

(three weeks in row for Thoreau…can you tell what I’m reading?)


I know whom I can TRUST.

I know that these children are a GIFT to me.

I know that I am in LOVE with someone in love with me.

I know that I am doing the RIGHT work right now.

I know that life is unpredictable and each day is a unique opportunity to LIVE.

I know that all of us deserve RESPECT and the right to just BE.

I know that my place in this world is INSIGNIFICANT and INDISPENSABLE.

I know that I have the POWER to control my reaction to my circumstances.

What do you know?
