In The End

 "Things present themselves to you, 
and it's how you choose to deal with them that reveals who you are. 
We all say a lot of things, don't we, about who we are and how we think. 
But in the end it's your actions, how you respond to circumstance that reveals your character."

- Cate Blanchett


"I will love the ambitious for they can inspire me!
I will love the failures for they can teach me. 
I will love the kings for the are but human; I will love the meek for the are divine. 
I will love the rich for they are yet lonely; I will love the poor for they are so many. 
I will love the young for the faith they hold; I will love the old for the wisdom they share. 
I will love the beautiful for their eyes of sadness; I will love the ugly for their souls of peace.
I will greet this day with love in my heart." 
-Og Mandino

The soul that seeks beauty may sometimes walk alone.”

Rush Of Gratitude

 And Oh, the Grace,
Salvation’s taste. 
The lips embrace cup,
White turns red to sup.
White to red,
to drink from that cup.
White as wool, 
Red as scarlet.
White to red, to drink from that goblet. 

White to white,
A palmer’s flight.
Pure, earnest might.
Precious gift, before the night.
The calm of night,
The fright of no light.
No sight. 

Drink then the cup of white. 
Lips pressed light,
 Blessed, blessed plight.

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

The Legacy you Live, is the Legacy you leave behind…


Golden Trees

Oh the ecstasy,
The light shining through the tree.
A moment almost blind, 
A beauty in the bind. 

That Beautiful Place Music Takes You To

Recommended song to listen to while admiring this piece, "Big Jet Plane"
 - Angus and Julia Stone.

It's kind of amazing how music can almost remove you from this world. The therapeutic and relieving benefit to music. What an magnificent discovery. :)

Shimmer of Gold

"A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. 
Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. 
But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, 
the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture."
-Abraham Joshua Heschel 

"I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. 
There was such a glory over everything. 
The sun came up like gold through the trees, 
And I felt like I was in heaven."
-Harriet Tubman 


"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - 
to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
Marcus Aurelius

Two Towers

Way out in the desert,
 Two towers stood tall amongst the landscape.
 Two towers,
Controlled the power. 

The Sun was setting on the horizon.
Darkness was waking.
The towers were not shaking.

 They had the light.

King Louis IV

Garden of Hesperides

Failure, like pain, is alien to my life. In the past I accepted it as I accepted pain. Now I reject it and I am prepared for wisdom and principles which will guide me out of the shadows into the sunlight of wealth, position, and happiness far beyond my most extravagant dreams until even the golden apples in the Garden of Hesperides will seem no more than my just reward.

The Distance

"Whatever you can do,
Or think you can, begin it.
Boldness has power, and genius,
And magic in it."
- Goethe
