Our Time

A   L   O   H   A  !
"When we drop fear,
 we can draw nearer
 to people, 
we can draw nearer
 to the earth,
 we can draw nearer 
to all the heavenly creatures 
that surround us. "

Bell Hooks

" Cathedral "

"A rock pile
ceases to be a rock pile
the moment
 a single man
 contemplates it,
bearing within him
the image of a cathedral. "

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

" Be thou comforted,
 little dog,
Thou too in
 shall have a little 
golden tail. "

Martin Luther 

> < 3 3 3 ( ' > 

Today I realized
that the 
of the first part
of my life
was my distance
and difference
from others.

I learned all I could
from that.

Now the motif
is all that
we share.

Going out,
coming in.

To everything
there is a time.

This is 
OUR Time!

Thank YOU
for being here-

Love that sentiment from Martin Luther.

If this is our time (speaking in general here, generationally our time) well we have everything fairly screwed up at the moment so we better learn to get along a little better, maybe start with the stopping of the sale of so many rounds of ammo.

Wonderful shots and quotes. This is indeed our time!

"Cathedral" made a lot of sense to me.

i like the second half of life much more...we were never meant to walk life alone you know...and we are not all that much to contemplate the rocks pile...smiles

Our time indeed Cloudia - we must make the most of it.

Myrna R. said...

Yes, it is our time. For me, so different than in youth. And I'm loving it.

Hope says "sharing is caring"
they teach them that in pre-school and she takes it seriously
which I love

I continue to have trouble getting to here
my anti-virus and my browser just refuse some sites
I come here when I can get on the basement PC

but I think of you all the time :)

Thank YOU! This speaks to my heart and to my experience.

Sure, all young people have to separate and we need distance when we are young to find out what we hold dear and what means the most. And often we find that its our relationships that mean the most and become what we cherish. You nail it.

Lisa said...
