The impulse to create is one of the greatest aspects of being human. I believe that this desire is in most of us. Unfortunately we often get too caught up in the “are we any good at it?” My feeling is - who cares. The question should be “does it feed your soul?” If not, move on to something else, but if it does, then please, keep doing it!

There is nothing quite like the season of autumn. We are reminded of the cycle of life when we see the trees change their colors and lose their leaves, standing naked for the winter. But what a feeling autumn brings with her!

Plato lived from around 427 to 347 B.C. Some things haven’t changed all that much, have they?

I think that everyone knows when someone REALLY speaks from the heart – in other words, in earnest. You know it, but would be hard pressed to explain it. You feel it. And isn’t that so much more effective than a speech? Speak from the heart – people will understand you.

Wouldn’t this world be a better place if everyone erred on the side of compassion?

Our little girl is planting the seed of a tree. Unnoticed – yes, but making the world a better place!

See everything with new eyes - the mystics having been saying this for ages. It can be a hard thing to do but it can also be worth trying. Try looking at something that is very familiar to you and see if you can see it anew. Just look and try to silence the dialogue in your head. Note the textures, the lines, the colors. It can be amazing what new eyes will be able to observe!

I have used this cartoon once before yet the message is worth repeating. I don’t think that anyone understands this quote better than new parents. Infants are a load of work but parents so love their baby’s that they don’t seem to mind as much as you might think. This is true of adults as well. No one is perfect and we understand that – we accept others that we love with all their faults and foibles. And hopefully, we apply that standard to ourselves as well.

This is a choice that we all have each morning – to let events that I have no control over run my life, or, to decide that I will be happy no matter what happens today. So, why not be happy today? Why let others decide how YOU are going to be? The result may actually irritate some people that you come in contact with, but, hey - that is their problem – not yours.

Through out life we are many things, and that’s OK. If we can remember the times when we are at our weakest, we should be able to help others in their hour of need.
