Missing Dave King

A  L  O  H  A !
It's a Beautiful Morning by The Rascals on Grooveshark
" My Daughter
 has made the darkness in my heart
 light up brighter 
than I ever thought possible. 

My Daughter 
gives me a reason 
to live and try 
each and every day. . . "

" I think of my home
 as a resort. 
When I step through 
the door,
 I feel relaxed. 
I almost feel
 like I've taken
 a vacation. "

Chip Conley

"When turkeys mate 
they think of swans. "

 Johnny Carson

> < } } (°>

" The tree decays
and by its own imperative
decay is spiritual
It's there in nature's blueprint for a life
as workaday as source code or a score
that calls the cellos to a poetry of sound.

All journeys are internal.
In the ending of a life
begins the spirit's odyssey.
The life is.
And the spirit is.
Nothing that is
is not. "

Wish my mother would have said and meant the first quote -
with the second I completely agree and the third is a good to-think-about. Love your posts.....
should add some quotes again to my postings, too.

The turkey quote had me giggling, Cloudia. And my daughter understands me better than I understand myself. :)

Wishing you a beauty-filled weekend!
