And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go 
bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!"

horse runs, or a bee makes honey,
 or a vine bears grapes 
season after season without 
thinking of the grapes 
it has borne."

all days is one

that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, 
the next hour are 
lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
You can turn over a 
new leaf every hour
if you choose.” 
               Arnold Bennett

We all carry, inside us, 
people who 
came before us.”

Practice Your Superpowers

A  L  O  H  A !
" Love is the power to 
see similarity in 
the dissimilar."
          Theodor Adorno

 Calmness is a superpower. 
The ability to not overreact 
or take things personally 
keeps your mind clear 
and your heart at peace.

" Life's like a movie, 
write your own ending. 
Keep believing, 
keep pretending. "

There is a LOT
going on in our world
and in our lives
right now. Just care for
yourself, those nearby,
and remain aware, BUT
not overwhelmed.
Practice your superpowers.
Express yourself to your
elected representatives.

Never Give up.

Your life is  too important

Thank YOU

Light in October

A  L  O  H  A !
“October had tremendous possibility. 
The summer's oppressive heat 
was a distant memory, and 
the golden leaves promised a 
world full of beautiful adventures. 
They made me believe in miracles.” 
                      Sarah Guillory

“There is something in October 
sets the gypsy blood astir: 
We must rise and follow her, 
When from every hill of flame 
She calls, and calls each 
vagabond by name.” 
                    William Bliss

“To hope and dream is not 
to ignore the practical. 
It is to dress it in 
colors and rainbows.”

an object or a fragment 
give it a personality

is always to 
deepen the mystery.”
