Gandhi

"True morality, consists not in following the beaten track, but in finding the righteous path for ourselves and following it fearlessly."

einstein

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious."

ed abbey

"There is no land more kind than home.  Where you have found your happiness!"

ed abbey

"I've imagined that maybe at the moment of death, the mind experiences the glory of eternity in that very instant.  In that flash between life and death.  And then everything shuts off but doesn't know that it shuts off because the last conscious perception was the realization of eternity.  Then the body decays and its elements meld with other forms of matter."

beloved

tiny feet
wandering in
sand

the salt
of your smell
engulfing
my senses

unconditionally

unconditional love

figure eights
running through
my mind

in times
past
my tears
comforted by
your tiny kisses

now needed
more than
ever, but
unable to
grasp...

long hikes
long walks
long time

your beauty
overwhelms
me

my heart
still
swollen
with love

the gifts I 
gave
were less 
than I 
received

did i think
that i could
keep you alive
forever?

yes.

daughter
companion
friend

you held my 
secrets

chased my
demons

and found
my laugh

first true trust
first true promise
first true love

a part of me...

has gone with you.

innocence, naivety
the lost child in me

her heart stopped
with yours

I laid
her in the
ground
with you

entwined in
each other

an eternal embrace
for our eternal slumber

goodbye my love.

Fry

"Shall we live in mystery and yet conduct ourselves as though everything were known?"

Lindbergh

"it is as if the intensity of grief fused the distance between you and the dead.  or perhaps, in reality, part of one dies.  like orpheus, one tried to follow the dead on the beginning of their journey.  but one cannot, like orpheus, go all the way, and after a long journey one comes back.  if one is lucky, one is reborn."

marcel proust

"We are healed of suffering only by experiencing it to the full."

Charles Dickens

"And can it be that in a world so full and busy, the loss of one weak creature makes a void in any heart, so wide and deep that nothing but the width and depth of vast eternity can fill it up!"

Kafka

"A book should serve as an axe for the frozen sea within us."

Camus

"In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer."
