“Silence is the source of healing.
When we bring things from within ourselves
out into the light of awareness,
a healing process happens.
In the silence, we can let go of all anger, sadness,
fear, loneliness and frustration.”
“No matter what happens in life, be good to people.
Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”
~ Taylor Swift ~
Being part of the natural world reminds me
that innocence isn’t ever lost completely;
we just need to maintain our goodness to regain it.

Oh Great Spirit who dwells in the sky,
lead us to the path of peace and understanding,
let all of us live together as brothers and sisters.
Our lives are so short here, walking upon Mother Earth’s surface,
let our eyes be opened to all the blessings you have given us.
Please hear our prayers, Oh Great Spirit.
“I am not a Sunday morning inside four walls
with clean blood and organized drawers.
I am the hurricane setting fire to the forests
at night when no one else is aliveor awake
however you choose to see it and I live in my own flames
sometimes burning too bright and too wild
to make things last or handle myself or anyone else and so I run.
run run run far and wide until my bones
ache and lungs split and it feels good.
Hear that people? It feels good because
I am the slave and ruler of my own body
and I wish to do with it exactly as I please”
“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge.
It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason.
It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
~ Edgar Allan Poe ~
When I saw you, I was afraid to meet you…
When I met you, I was afraid to kiss you…
When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you…
Now that I love you, I’m afraid to lose you.
