"...We are born into the world like a blank canvas
and every person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes their mark upon our surface.
So it is that we develop.
But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work. For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a masterpiece..."

"...Joy is the sweet voice, joy the luminous cloud-
We in ourselves rejoice !
And thence flows all that charms our ear or sight,
All melodies the echoes of that voice,
All colors a suffusion from that light..."
        ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge ~


"...Joy is a mystery because it can happen anywhere, anytime,
even under the most unpromising circumstances,
even in the midst of suffering, with tears in it's eyes..."
                   ~ Frederick Buechner ~


"...here is a simple revelation that is bringing me a lot of freedom:
There is enough time...I am discovering that I have exactly the right number of hours and minutes and seconds to accomplish and do everything that I need to do in my lifetime..."
                    ~ Claire Cloninger ~


"...Hope is hearing the melody of the future. Faith is to dance it..."
                        ~ Rubem A. Alves ~



A Tear
"...O' that the chemist's magic art
Could crystallize this sacred treasure !
Long should it glitter near my heart,
A secret source of pensive pleasure..."
            ~ Samuel Rogers ~


"...In our language we have two words
           Solitude and Lonliness
Solitude is being alone
Without thinking about being alone
While lonliness is being alone
And being aware that you're alone..."
            ~ Javan (from the book, Meet Me Halfway) ~


"... We are born into this World
Like a blank canvas
And every person that crosses our path
Takes up the brush
And makes their mark
Upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day
That we must take up the brush
And finish the work
For only we can determine
If we are to be
Just another painting
Or a masterpiece..."
             ~ Javan ( from the book, Meet Me Halfway) ~


"... From time to time
Through the years
The world has brought me down
To teach me about pain
And has filled my eyes with tears
But there came a day
That I started to understand
That it is not about pain
That the World is trying to teach me
But rather about Life
And the not so simple act
Of Being Human..."
         ~ Javan (from the book, A Heart Full of Love) ~

Here's A Few .


Little Mary from Boston Mass.
Stepped into water up to her ankles.
It doesn't rhyme now,
But wait till the tide comes in.

Graffitti New Haven 1976.


The cur foretells the knell of parting day;
The loafing heard winds slowly o'er the lea
The wise man homeward plods;I only say
To fiddle - faddle in a minor key

Ambrose Bierce

A sonnet goes eight lines and then
takes a turn for better or worse and
and goes six or eight lines more.
Robert Frost

Poetry is like fish: if it's fresh it's good;
if it's stale, it's bad; and if your not
certain, try it on the cat.

While Jan (Orion) and I were discussing poetry and critiquing earlier today, she wrote to me these words (with permission) that I find very enlightening. angel.gif

Here a few that John (JLY) sent me recently:

"Life is drawing without an eraser." ~ Unknown

"We can choose to be in reaction and settle on what we get...or we can choose our fate with conscious deliberation and get what we want." ~ Unknown


and a few I found in fortune cookies:

"The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing, because you think you can do only a little."

"If you have no critics you'll likely have no success."

"A journey must begin with a single step."

There is a land of pure delight,
Beyond the Jordan's flood,
Where saints, apparelled all in white,
Fling back the critic's mud.

And as he legs it through the skies,
His pelt a sable hue,
He sorrows sore to recognize
The missiles that he threw.

~Orrin Goof


An art whose medium is language will always show a high degree of critical creativeness, for speech is itself a critique of life: it names, it characterizes, it passes judgment, in that it creates. ~ Mann, Thomas

That IS good advice Leigh Ann.

As I ponder those words, I think of this:
"A backbone needs to bend, not break."

I just made that up, but the sentiment is so true to life for me. Whenever anyone would say, "Grow a backbone, Lori!" I would cower, feeling inferior and afraid to speak up for myself (I'm speaking of folks that I've worked with at my day job here), feeling that my character was just ridiculed (years ago).

It didn't take long for me to realize that I was too fragile and insecure, so people took advantage. There are ways to help someone when in a vulnerable state of mind - breaking their confidence is not the way.

Anywho, here is a quote that one of my co-workers recently penned:

"As long as we are willing to learn from each other, the sky is not the limit, it is just the beginning!" ~ Carl Gamberdella
