Not into drama, just real folks who do not play head games.
I am a naturally curious soul who loves to learn.
The more loss we feel, the more grateful we should be for whatever it was we had to lose. It means we had something worth grieving for.
~ Frank O'Connor
People are always mistaking something that
looks good for something that feels good.
~ Jonathan Safran Foer
"Here I Am"
That which shrinks
Must first expand.
That which fails
Must first be strong.
That which is cast down
Must first be raised.
There must be giving.
~ Lao Tsu
springggrain: I had a box of colors -
Shining, bright, and bold.
I had a box of colors,
Some warm, some very cold.
I had no red for the blood of wounds.
I had no black for the orphans' grief.
I had no white for dead faces and hands.
I had no yellow for burning sands.
But I had orange for the joy of life,
And I had green for buds and nests.
I had blue for bright, clear skies.
I had pink for dreams and rest.
I sat down
~ poet unknown
