Today Me Live

A  L  O  H  A !
Who That?
 "I think I fall in love 
a little bit with anyone 
who shows me their soul. 
This world is so 
guarded and fearful." 
            Emery Allen 

"They who do not 
fear darkness have 
learned to light 
their own candle.” 

“Today me will live 
in the moment 
unless it's unpleasant 
in which case 
me eat a cookie."

God Speed John Glenn

A  L  O  H  A !
"On February 20, 1962, 
Glenn flew the Friendship 7 
mission and became the 
first American to orbit the Earth 
and the fifth person in space, 
after cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and 
Gherman Titov and the 
sub-orbital flights of Mercury 
astronauts Alan Shepard 
and Gus Grissom. "

I was 8.
We watched it in school.
The future was happening
and we were to be part of it!
JFK was US President.
I had a Mercury Capsule
pencil sharpener.

“We are our own dragons 
and our own heroes. 
We must rescue ourselves 
from ourselves.” 
Peter S. Beagle

Goodbye  Geese
“Heroes know that things 
must happen when it is 
time for them to happen. 
A quest may not simply 
be abandoned; unicorns 
may go unrescued for 
a long time, but 
not forever; a happy 
ending cannot come 
in the middle 
of the story.” 
    Peter S. Beagle

Thank You

in which every one 
displays his own image. "

 it is outwardly 
realized in other 
people's hearts.”

beauty in the humblest 
things makes home
