better things to do

"I once had a garden filled with flowers that grew only on dark thoughts but they need constant attention & one day I decided I had better things to do."

blossoming

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  ~Marcel Proust

finding what you seek

03 02 10 073


we come to the pool
for a drink
for words
for courage
for cleansing


we come to the pool
with hope


we come searching
for love
for acceptance
for strength
for endurance
for passion
for tolerance
for clarity



we come expecting


we take a drink



sometimes
in this pool of possibilities
we find the things we seek


renewal
words
love
strength
hope


sometimes
we walk away
empty


still thirsty
for what the pool
cannot hold


and we wait
and we change
and become a
humble seeker of that
which can fill our own spirit


of that which cleanses
and delivers
and fills with love
and possibility

"There are some days when no matter what I say it feels like I'm far away in another country & whoever is doing the translating has had far too much to drink"

~ Storypeople




love this storypeople quote this week.....it fits me perfectly right now as


some things feel a little less than stable in some areas. i think life is definitely


a ride and sometimes we get reminded of how tightly we must hold on.


sometimes the abrupt turns that initially make us feel off course and about


to lose our grip can be the exact ones that balance us and support us and


put us on a better path.



one thing i know for certain is that


life can be a funny thing - many times wonderful, sometimes scary and


uncertain and hard and full of anxiety, but always beautiful.

one.at.a.time.

o n e.   a t.   a.   t i m e.

Today is the greatest
Day I've ever known
Can't live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow's much too long....




~Billy Corgan, "Today," Siamese Dream


(Smashing Pumpkins), 1993



********







Isn't that really the only way we can take our days?


One at a time?




Yes, one beautiful, life-filled day at a time.

5 : 52

just one of the DMB songs i can't get enough of lately....

for the love of spring

~~~

your first whispers are long-awaited

your sweet scents are divine



you warm my heart and mind and body

you're a brand new chapter, full of possibility

♥

you are simple but grand, your beauty unequaled

the love letters you write sustain me throughout the year

oh ~ the love letters spring can write....

your visit is fleeting

you, my dearest spring, bring me back to life

songs to herself - 4:52

s o n g s  .  t o  .  h e r s e l f

"She waved at all the people on the trains
& later, when she saw they didn't wave back,
she started singing songs to herself
& it went that way the whole day
& she couldn't remember having a better time in her life."

...just because i love this storypeople quote.
