Live Live Live

Life is precious and slips by quickly. We look up and it’s tomorrow and we wonder what happened to yesterday or even what we did yesterday. We remember carnivals not checklists.

To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people just exist – Oscar Wilde

“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what’s next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
― Agnes De Mille

Which Way Does Your Door Swing?

Are you waiting for someone to open the door and say Come on in
or
Are you pushing it open and saying Here I am?

If we wait for someone to open the door, we will must likely get rained on, tired, over heated and miss the show.
We pushed ourselves into this life,came out screaming and people noticed. If we had waited inside that womb for someone to tell us okay we’re ready for you, we might still be waiting in the dark. Cozy but not having a great deal of fun. There would be no ukulele playing.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to your courage – Anais Nin

It takes courage to grow up and become who you are -e.e. Cummings

Refuge From The Chaos

It’s the year of the Wood Sheep

I’ve’ read many meanings and it seems to boil down to – A year to take refuge from the chaos that numbs us. It’s a time to come to our senses. Sheep appear quite mild but in actuality are toughies. They survive harsh weather, lack of food, the embarrassment of a bad haircut yet stay calm and focused.

I imagine this is what they are singing So take a bring and do a little new year dance

Dancing With Words

How we sometimes feel when writing or reading a book. A choreographer who is dyslexic expresses his experience. A truly amazing performance.

Unwrap Nature’s Gift

It’s a hectic time of year where we all get wrapped up in the wrong things. We can forget to leave space for the magic.

Watching this video may help put things in perspective.

We Are All Creators

We are all creators of the world around us. However we choose to do it. We don’t have to create a masterpiece to matter. A small thing like creating a smile for someone who needs one is enough.

An inspiring video that reminds us how important the strength of women can be

Think You Can And You Will

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.“ – Mahatma Gandhi

Could it be that Gandhi read The Little Engine that could ? it was the first self help book I ever read. I was 4 years old and it formed how I look at life. It had a strong female who thought she could and she did. It’s been around for 84 years and still is a top selling picture book. If you have not read it, I’ve posted the video of the book below. There’s also a catchy tune at the end. It can put a skip in your day
