The Pleasure of A Dog

The great pleasure of a dog
 is that you may make a fool of yourself with him
 and not only will he not scold you,
 but he will make a fool of himself too.
 ~Samuel Butler

Straighten It Out

The world is perfect.  It's a mess.
It has always been a mess.
We aren't going to change it.
Our job is to straighten out our own lives.
Joseph Campbell

i carry your heart

i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
ee cummings

consists not in seeking new landscapes
but in having new eyes.

we borrow it from our children.

I finally learned that within me
there lay an invincible summer.

While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about.

On Eagle's Wings

And He will raise you up on eagle's wings
Bear you on the breath of dawn
Make you to shine like the sun
And hold you in the palm of His hand.
Lyrics based on Isaiah 40:31

If you're going to walk on thin ice,
you might as well dance.

This Fine Place

The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for,
and I hate very much to leave it.
