And I Still Don't Know

When I saw this shirt I thought of how Cynthesis said we're sometimes enigmas to ourselves.

But You Have to Want It Enough to Work at It

Approaching a Friend's Door

I feel joy when I approach my dear friend's door. This house belonged to her grannie, and she grew up here. We don't need to talk much, just catch up on grandkids and family news, then lapse into comfortable, companionable silence. Approaching her door fills me with a quiet, deep happiness, just knowing she is on the other side.

Letting Go

We need in love to practice only this: letting each other go.
For holding on comes easily--we do not need to learn it.

there were baby birds in this nest, robins perhaps. not wanting to get too close, hoping they've survived several nasty storms, hoping they'll be flying around by the time we return.

Hope is the dream of the waking man.

The Wolverine

Here is a page from an old turn of the century natural history text book.

Today's theme is shoes, and so I choose *Wolverine made in USA workboots as my footwear of choice. Wolverine supports the Wolverine Foundation, a wildlife group.

* Not all Wolverine products are made in USA so check if you are boycotting China.
