"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change"

Daybreak

When you do something noble and beautiful, don’t be disappointed if nobody notices – when you cannot tell anyone, though you may feel like shouting it from the rooftops :-) Think of the sun which rises in a beautiful spectacle every morning, while most of its audience still sleeps!

There will always a few who see. The beauty, the warmth, the glow lasts through the day… it spreads and envelops your whole world in light.

Fleet Week 2012

Supermoon

Within reach

“Space, the final frontier… the voyages of the Starship Enterprise… to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before”

I grew up listening to the familiar refrain of this opening sequence from Star Trek, and dreaming of how it would be to explore the far reaches of space…

And then on a bright morning in spring, finally the chance to see our own version of the “Starship Enterprise” – the US space shuttle on its final flight along the Manhattan skyline.

This one hasn’t ever been into space it seems :) … still felt absolutely exhilarating to watch – like the vastness of the universe out there is somehow within reach – all things possible.

Joy everywhere

In the wind,
In the breeze,
In the sun,
In the trees.

In a flower,
In a bird,
In a smile,
In a word.

In a look,
In a glance,
In a song,
In a dance.

In the morn,
In the day,
In your home,
On the way.

In your love,
In a friend,
In a hand,
You extend.

If you pause,
If you look,
There is joy
To be took

Any day,
Any where,
Every day…
Every where…

(Flower by the sidewalk on the way to work this morning)

A vacation… any place, any day – a moment of beauty, a smile

 

“Why not pause an instant? Give in to fun
Enjoy the day’s passing, this golden sun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why do you hurry? Come sit a while,
Create a memory, share a smile.”

 

 

 

 

Why should the grass be green on the other side of the fence?
The happiness we strive for, always in future tense…
