It Changes Everything

"I urge you to travel.
As far and as much as possible.

Work ridiculous shifts to save your money.
Go without the latest I-phone.
Throw yourself out of your comfort zone.
Find out how other people live
and realize the world is a much bigger place
than the town you live in.

And when you come home,
home may still be the same,
and yes, you may go back
to the same old job,
but something in your mind will
have changed.

And trust me,
that changes everything." -unknown

Old Friends

Sifting through the trees
Settle like dust
On the shoulders
Of the old friends."

My Symphony

"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable;
and wealthy, not rich.
to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly...
to listen to stars and buds, to babes
and sages, with open heart;
await occasions, hurry never...
This is my symphony." William Henry Channing

"Love is always a leap into
the unknown. You can try to 
control as many variables,
and understand a situation
as best as you can, but you're still
jumping off a cliff and hoping
that someone catches you." -L. Kleypas
