The One Who Tries

"It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out where the strong man stumbled
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred with dust and sweat and blood.
At best, he knows the triumph of high achievement;
if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who knew neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

Communion With Others

Hemingway with friends Paris

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin once said, 
“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others  that have a larger vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendships between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe.”

Happy St. Paddy's Day

Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Appreciation for the Now

(Source: dappledwillow, via w-orry)

Breathing in I calm my body
Breathing out I smile
Dwelling in the present moment
I know this is a beautiful moment.

Like Rain

Let my teaching fall on you like rain; let my speech settle like dew.

 Let my words fall like

 rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.

Tea with Tracy

My friend Tracy took me to tea this week.

 I call her the "Queen of Tea." 
 She hosts the best tea parties in town.*

  On this occasion Tracy  treated me to tea at a place called "Vintage Tea" in Long Beach.**

 It is a charming  and cozy little place

 which also houses a cute little store

that sells a large selection of teas

and many gift items.

We had a leisure and very lovely afternoon

sipping tea

and dining on  scones with Devonshire cream and lemon curd

delicious finger sandwiches,

 fresh fruits and desserts.

We each had our own large pot of hot, steamy tea.

What a lovely and relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

"Magical moments await when tea is brewed
to perfection and friends are close at hand."

Thank you to my dear friend Tracy for this special treat.

That Day

(via Pinterest)

That day I carried the dream around like a full glass of water, 

moving gracefully so I would not lose any of it.

Dancing Cheek to Cheek

"Heaven , I'm in Heaven,
and my heart beats so
that I can hardly speak,
and I seem to 
find the Happiness
I seek,
when we're out together
dancing cheek to cheek." -Lyrics Irving Berlin
