There is an emanation from the heart

which cannot be described,

but is immediately felt and puts

the stranger at his ease.

~Washington Irving

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough...

.........and more.

It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home,

a stranger into a friend.

~Melody Beattie

Don't be satisfied with stories,

how things have gone with others.

Unfold your own myth.

May my life be like a great

hospitable tree, and may

weary wanderers find in

me a rest.

~John Henry Jowett

Full Bloom

Oxford is abloom this weekend with books and flowers.

We've reached daffodil full bloom along the River Cherwell.  You can find the river and the daffodils on the beautiful walk around Christ Church Meadow ~ entering the meadow through the Christ Church entrance on St. Aldate's or by Rose Lane, off the High Street and next to the Botanical Gardens.

Also this weekend, Christ Church is one of the venues hosting the Sunday Times Literary Oxford Festival which offers 550 speakers over 9 days at Christ Church, Corpus Christi and Merton Colleges.  You can find more information at:
