Like A Hawk

A  L  O  H  A !
"I am not a snowflake. 
I am not a sweet, infantilising 
symbol of fragility and life. 
I am a strong, fierce, flawed 
adult woman. I plan to remain 
that way, in life 
and in death."
               Stella Young

"I restore myself 
when I'm alone"  
                 Marilyn Monroe

 “Accomplishments don’t erase 
shame, hatred, cruelty, silence, 
ignorance, discrimination, low 
self-esteem or immorality. 
It covers it up, 
with a creative version 
of pride and ego. - 

- Only restitution, 
forgiving yourself and others, 
compassion, repentance 
and living with dignity will 
ever erase the past.”
           Shannon L. Alder

Oh I'm Getting Out Of Here!

"Be proud of every 
scar on your heart, 
each one holds a 
lifetime’s worth 
of lessons."
             Wallace Stegner

Thanks so much friends! We are close to the N. Calif fires and breathing lots of smoke, but otherwise in no danger. Shocking to have places and people I know affected!
