Farewell New Smyrna Beach! … (11/09/11)

After returning to New Smyrna Beach in the beginning of October, I was blessed to spend a very meaning-full four+ weeks working on this Blog page and caring for (and being cared for by) Simon the cat.  I also completed and uploaded my very first (and to this date only) youtube music video, but that’s […]

Fare-well — for Now … (11/07/11)

“I’m not a teacher: only a fellow traveler of whom you have asked the way. I have pointed ahead – ahead for myself as well as you.” ~ G. B. Shaw I’ve had lots of fun here on Facebook over the past year+ of my life. Intimate dialogues have been exchanged, clear Wisdom has been […]

seek to Accept … (11/06/11)

“Always carry with you a little reasonable doubt, should you meet someone who needs to be found innocent.” ~ Robert Brault . “Be slow to criticize and quick to commend.” ~ John Wooden . “Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.” ~ Samuel Johnson All your analysis of others is either self-reflective […]

let’s dance! … (11/06/11)

Well, it’s Sunday today — a day when a significant portion of the population in this country is going to church to engage their once-a-week tete-a-tete with God. Well I’m here to tell you, we don’t have to wait for Sunday to “go to church”, and we sure as heck don’t need to be still […]

“The artist is extremely lucky who is presented with the worst possible ordeal which will not actually kill him. At that point he is in business.” ~ John Barrymore Pain is an integral part of living, and yet our suffering is not. Our suffering comes from OUR choices; from refusing to see that pain is […]

Love anyway … (11/04/11)

What motivates you to Love? … (11/03/11)

At first I tried to love others in order to attain “true happiness” for myself, and that never really worked … My euphoria always faded, and I always felt that something BIG was “missing”. Then, I tried to love others in order to “help them” or “fix them” … That never really worked either … […]

Love is letting go … (11/03/11)

“I try … I fail. I try again … I fail again. I try harder … I fail even worse. I am determined to see Love “win”, so I try again … I fail spectacularly. I let go of all my desires … I simply Love for Love’s sake … … … & I succeed.” […]

Love is Courage … (11/02/11)

I have often searched the depths of my mind for peace, & I have journeyed over & again to the ends of the earth looking for Love. Both these quests have always ended in vain. And yet today I seek these things no more, for I find them, whole and untarnished, every time I give […]

success is not giving up … (11/01/11)

“It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children … I want to know if you will […]
