Fresh...


I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.

Live and die...

Learn how to live and you'll know how to die; learn how to die, and you'll know how to live.

Bloom...

As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.

I'll rise...

You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lines. You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I'll rise.

Rust...

Guilt upon the conscience, like rust upon iron, both defiles and consumes it, gnawing and creeping into it, as that does which at last eats out the very heart and substance of the metal.

Don't notice it??

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.

Red is....

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.

The narrow bud...

The narrow bud opens her beauties to
The sun, and love runs in her thrilling veins;
Blossoms hang round the brows of morning, and
Flourish down the bright cheek of modest eve...

~William Blake (1757-1827), "To Autumn"

Beautiful Bride..

The earth is like a beautiful bride who needs no manmade jewels to heighten her loveliness.
