“I don’t fit into any demographic, I never really have. But that’s true of lots of us, especially people my age and younger who’ve grown up with complicated identities, because life has gotten more complicated, and in which we don’t want to be defined by any single one of them, but are happy to present [...]

The beauty of the evening forest…

By |2017-07-17T01:07:59+00:00January 28th, 2014|Environment, Nature|

The beauty of the evening forest, especially under a full moon, throws into sharp contrast the boundary between the sky and the mountain ridges, as if viewing a wood-block print. It is a world of white and black. It is also a world savored only by those who experience it. Captured in photos or video, [...]

Proud of the results…

By |2018-02-26T16:57:32+00:00September 9th, 2011|Growth, Maturity|

[...] Proud of the results but not of the action. Everyone but I must look back on my behavior.

“That which causes us trials shall yield us triumph: and that which make our hearts ache shall fill us with gladness.

  Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light?  - Maurice Freehill In a profound sense every man has two halves to his being; he is not one person so much as two persons trying to act in unison.  I believe that in the heart of [...]

When we limit ourselves with low expectations, the growth of the tree of happiness ceases. The power of growth, of improvement, the power to overcome all stagnation and break through every obstacle and transform a barren wasteland into a verdant field--that unstoppable power of hope resides right within your own heart.
