Quote for the Day
“The life I’m living
is the life I’m given.”
“I Like To Sleep Late In The Morning”
Thought for the Day
I enjoyed my fishing trip yesterday. I returned home and prepared myself a birthday feast. Afterwards I took a brief nap and then headed to the garden where I spent the afternoon picking blueberries.
Thought For The Day
“I went to the woods
because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life,
and see if I could not learn
what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die,
discover that I had not lived.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
Two Wolves – A Cherokee Parable
“An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life…
‘A fight is going on inside me,’ he said to the boy.
‘It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope,
serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy,
generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you
and inside every other person, too.’
The grandson thought about it for a minute
and then asked his grandfather,
‘Which wolf will win?’
The old chief simply replied,
‘The one you feed.”

Thought for Today
“I think dogs
are the most amazing creatures;
they give unconditional love.
For me they are the role model
for being alive.”
– Gilda Radner
Dear God, please send me somebody who’ll care!
I’m tired of running, I’m sick with despair.

Thought for Today
“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
~ Bertrand Russell
With the coming of summer we have been very busy. The garden is in great shape and we shall have a bountiful harvest this year. The blueberries are getting plump and soon will change from green to blue. The chicken coop is nearly complete and the hen house is ready for fresh eggs. The early wildflowers are at their peak and the summer wildflowers are coming on strong. Yesterday we had a wonderful much needed slow rain. I truly love this time of year.
The biggest problem I have right now is my days are spent outside in the fresh air and enjoying the experiences of nature. I can sit for hours on the creek bank watching the water go by, marveling at the occasional antics of the Kingfisher.
Hold on to what is good,
Even if it’s a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it’s easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday
I’ll be gone away from you.
~ A Pueblo Indian Prayer
