See, this dog - he's just sitting there and relaxing and letting the world go by. Nothing is going to bother him today . . . he's cute isn't he?
"The first sight of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left. " (- Chicago Tribune) That means turn the volume off! Turn your engines off! Be still. Be quiet. Listen - like the movie August Rush talked about - that there is music all around us if we only listen for it.
As you know I've been thinking a lot about Alaska (lol). I don't know if it's really Alaska that I fell in love with - if it was that I allowed myself to be my real self out there - if it was the idea of having some freedom and peace - if it was the pioneering spirit I saw out there - or if it was just the people I met along the way. Something moved me - guess it was all of the above.
A friend wrote me - "Sometimes a person finds the place they need to be, and they move there. It's a physical place, sometimes, and others times, it's a mental place. Life passes quickly -- it's a quick trip through -- no returns -- too short to mess around in a place just existing, or existing for others, while there's a place where the person can be WHOLE instead of have a HOLE in their heart!!! [Now to take my own advice...!!!] " ~ ODP.
I wish for everyone today that they are in the place they need to be. So that you can be whole instead of having a hole in your heart.
Keep breathing :)
