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.
~Rumi


May my life be like a great

hospitable tree, and may

weary wanderers find in

me a rest.

Indian Summer Flowers

"Each golden day was cherished to the full,
for one had the feeling that each would be the last.
Tomorrow it would be winter."
~Elizabeth Enright


"The Indian Summer of Life should be a little sunny 
and a little sad like the season,
and infinite in wealth and depth of tone,
but never hustled."
~Henry Adams
