...keep close to us in the sunshine...

"May we never have friends who, like shadows, keep 
close to us in the sunshine only to desert us in a cloudy 
day or in the night."

a toast.
this one is fitting for shadows today.
but the toast itself.
was for the letting go.
of a negative in my life.
and for moving on.
and for breathing life.
into the next chapter.
of this journey.
we call life.
"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun.
And find your shoulder to light on.
To bring you luck, happiness and riches.
Today, tomorrow and beyond."
just BE.

 "I don't believe in hope.. hope is a beggar. I believe in faith that burns through hope. Fear...fear is a player and you decide how much game it will play in your life.
Life happens for you, not to you."
~jim carrey

right about now.

...and then go out and do that...

don't ask yourself 
what the world needs
ask yourself what makes
you come alive
and then go out and do that
because what the world needs
is people who can come alive
Harold Thurman Whitman.

my little corner.
of heaven.
summer in full swing.
evening shadows.
makes enjoying the moments.
just BE.
