I Need Peace In My House

“Today is the first day of the rest of my life”

What a beautiful quote,  imagine starting all over again, not from the start but, just where you are now!

I am 60 years young, if I need a fresh start it should come, and soon.  It is not me, it is the new generation, they tend to forget that we are the teachers.  They will too be the next teachers. But, no! They only fear us.

I never feared the past, I only learned.

“The door to the past is a strange door.  It swings open and things pass through it, but they pass in one direction only.  No man can return across that threshold, though he can look down still and see the green light waver in the water weeds.”

~Loren Eiseley

Remember well, think before you act or say something that may change the present.  In the future when you know you did wrong, you will never be able to change what you have done.

I Am Air

The Earth, long my home Through the dark of Winter,
Has yielded to the morning breath of air.
The Plan now urges me to outbreathe,
To expand to meet my desteny.
Why am I here?
For what have I returned this time?
And the air breathes its laughing answer past me.
“You are life.
You are the all in the process of becoming One.
Experience yourself.”

Winter Nature

there’s too much
wonder in this world
not to glare and
stare and gaze and
relish and soak and
bathe and drown in it;
i swear I will never
take for granted
the ways in which the
snowy winds slip and
whistle by my ears,
the ways in which the
sunlight grooves
in her palms and
the ways in which
She makes nature
feel so wonderful.
