Happy Birthday America!
"We must be free not because we claim freedom
but that we practice it. Happy Independence Day!"
"It was a summer of wistaria. The twilight was full of it and of the smell of his father's cigar as they sat on the front gallery after supper...while in the deep shaggy lawn below the veranda fireflies blew and drifted in soft random."

"He who can no longer pause
to wonder and stand rapt in awe
is as good as dead;
his eyes are closed."
All of life seemed frozen in that one photo.
The miracle is not to walk on water.
The miracle is to walk on earth.
The true meaning of
"And there is not anything in the world stronger than tenderness.
"If you love the sacred and despise the ordinary
you are still bobbing in the sea of illusion."

"People bring to what they see and feel
the inner weather of their souls
and complexion of their minds."
...and we are so very grateful that they do.
Pursue what catches your heart
not what catches your eyes.
In life we have two choices really.
Wait for that special day
or celebrate every day as special.
Thanks for stopping by your visits mean the world to me.
Take good care of you.
