February - a month of love 

And now, these three remain faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

That's if for now ...

The importance of Play

Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a
tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play.
- Henri Matisse

Never underestimate how important play is in your life. Regardless of age play is essential. I'll never forget how sad I felt when I was told we weren't going to play anymore in school. I was devestated because I knew this was wrong. This removal of play. Never let anyone take or steal or belittle your sense of fun or your desire to play.

That's it for now ...

Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again;
we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.
- Jack Kerouac

Some roads are better now walked alone.

As I prepare to hit the road again for a month of trips I think about every step I have taken to reach here. I consider but can't feel the pain and I smile at the joy. I hold tight to the one who knows the way and my eyes sparkle with happiness at all that is to come. I walk into my future embracing it with both hands.

How do you see your future?

That's it for now...

Do nothing?

We all have a choice? What's yours? Mine is to act in as best I can in any given situation. To stand up and be a voice for the voiceless. To tell their stories.

That's it for now ...

Drastically Different

As we come to know the seriousness of the situation, the war, the racism, the poverty in our world, we come to realize that things will not be changed simply by words or demonstrations. Rather, , it's a question of living one's life in a drastically different way.
