Old & New

spring brings hope

"Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life's sweetest creation."

* sweet words gleaned from the back of a papyrus greeting card. Aren't they (papyrus cards) the best? The priciest, but still... the best!

I had a beautiful weekend, it was productive and fun.
I applied for a job, shopped, volunteered(!), shopped, made appointments, had a luxurious manicure, dropped in on a last minute dinner and movie date w/ my cali "family" and best of all...
I had wonderful phone conversations with loved ones, i received a beautiful card in the mail.
Life is good, there is ALWAYS a reason to c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-e.
How was YOUR weekend?
Please tell me what made you happiest...

where do you "live"?

"What we speak becomes the house we live in."
- Hafiz

Do you speak kind words?
If you do, i bet you live in a happy home.
What you give is often what you get.
Give kindness and love.

Are You Interesting?

"What is interesting after all is the making of a self, an act of creation, like any other, That does imply a certain amount of conscious work"

-May Sarton

Tell me.......

Who are you?

Who do you wish you were?

Do you feel like you are your "true self"?

I don't think it's easy to "create" yourself, it takes work every day. What is easy, is sitting around, wondering about who you "could" be. Wondering will not get you very far. The only way to find or create yourself is to try new things, spend more time doing the things you love and especially the things you are most scared of .
