To Be Me~

To be yourself in a world that is constantly tryingto make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

So many miles before I sleep~

These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep. 
March 7, 1923: Robert Frost's most well-known poem, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening, was published 91 years ago today.

Inspired by Michael

I adore your table and the vignette you have created!
You are reaching new highs Michael!!
Such a doll you are~
Your friend : ) Cynthia

I suppose I am~

I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us. 

Before Khaled Hosseini (born March 4, 1965) became a novelist, he was a doctor. Even after his first book, The Kite Runner, was published, he continued to practice for another year and a half before deciding to write full time.

Divine Love~

In a Tree House

Will someday split you open
Even if your life is now a cage,

For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
Is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
You hold the title to.

Love will surely bust you wide open
Into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy

Even if your mind is now
A spoiled mule.

A life-giving radiance will come,
The Friend's gratuity will come -

O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.

From a sacred crevice in your body
A bow rises each night
And shoots your soul into God.

Behold the Beautiful Drunk Singing One
From the lunar vantage point of love.

He is conducting the affairs
of the whole universe

While throwing wild parties
In a tree house - on a limb
In your heart.
