our ideals 
of beauty 
would BE.

Is there anything more souless than the Botox look?
Accept the wisdom lines, and the gray or thinning hair.
Weave them in with your memories.
Take charge as you journey into the Third Age.
Go with pride and optimism.

High Hopes~Patrick Lindsay

ZEN

is not attained by mirror-wiping
mediation, but by self-forgetfulness
in the existential present of life
here and now.
We do not "come" we "are."
Don't strive to become, but BE.
Bruce Lee

it's thinking about storming again.
the sky is beautiful.
enjoy the moments.

I'm ready to be inspired, she said
& I said that's not quite how it works, 
so instead we sat in the garden,
breathing & watching the bees
until she smiled quietly 
& said, 
I forget it's just that simple.

We'll never see the miracles of God
until we take one brave step
and start up the mountain 
-God will take the mountain-
all we have to do is
take courage & take the next step

At the end of the day...
I know I am a good person.

I am far from perfect
but my intensions are good;
my heart is pure, and
I love with everything I have.
Because of these things,

I am worth it.
Always have been,
always will be.

just BE.

Your peace is more important
than driving yourself crazy trying 
to understand why something 
happened the way it did.
Let it go.

Resolve to be tender
with the young,

Compassionate with the aged,

Sympathetic with the striving

And tolerant with the 
weak and wrong.

Sometime in your life
you will have been all of these.

As you become a lantern 
lighting the way for others, 
you'll find yourself 
surrounded by lanterns
lighting the way for you.
~Begin with YES 

tho there are things.
to dislike about a country, dirt road.
there are also things.
that make me smile.

Grow with slow purpose, in harmony, and

And,  at the right time, bloom.

Don't think about 
what can happen in a 
month. Don't think
about what can happen 
in a year. Just focus 
on the 24 hours in front
of you and do what
you can to get
closer to  where you 
want to BE.

lovely rain today.

The Best Is Yet To Come

THE REST of your life...should be the best of
your life. You have the power to make it so. Look
up and ahead: remember, whatever stage you're
at...it's not the final destination.

PERFECTION EXISTS only in our dreams.
in real life it's unattainable and often unattractive.
Our imperfections set us apart as much as our
achievements. Once we learn to accept them,
we gain confidence...in our strengths, our
resilience and our potential. After all, if we
reach perfection, there's only one way to go.
High Hopes-Patrick Lindsay

An adventurous life
DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN
climbing mountains, 
swimming with sharks or
jumping off cliffs.
It means risking yourself
by leaving a little piece of you behind
in all those you meet along the way.
