Run This Town

has come to


Today's song is upbeat! I find it very compelling:

"Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries."

James Michener

Trees look ghostly and mysterious at night.
I like the rainbow effect in this shot.

"Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
but beautiful old people are works of art."
Eleanor Roosevelt

This small dog can drink us all under the table!

"The only end of writing
is to enable the readers better to enjoy life,
or better to endure it."
Samuel Johnson


Walking along the beach yesterday,
I was thinking that it often takes "common sense"
a while to catch up to the facts.

Some old folks were afraid to have electricity,
or telephones, in their homes.
Common sense once proclaimed:
"Man was not meant to fly"
But we know that men
and women
DO fly every day,
though many of us still feel that primal fear
of losing the ground beneath our feet.

Mystics have long taught us
that our thoughts have power,
effecting ourselves, others,
and our circumstances
small and large.

Common sense rebels at this,
but yesterday I saw a report on the news
in which the reporter was driving a small car
with only her thoughts!

Brain waves can be measured.
When an angry or agitated person enters the room
we feel it - whatever our logic dictates.

I like to think that there is a benevolent effect
from the love I feel for those who walk beside me.

Today I found the passage below in a book.

"In many ways
the spiritual challenge of 'waiting'
and becoming a different quality of person
makes more of a contribution to this world
than financing a new hospital. . .
We are unaccustomed to giving value to what we
cannot see,
and we cannot see the power emitted
from a healthy psyche."
Caroline Myss
"Anatomy of the Spirit"

What do YOU think?
Can you feel it?
