Agile Fragile Smile

A   L   O   H   A  !
"It occurs to me that the 
peculiarity of most things 
we think of as fragile is 
how tough they truly are...

...There were tricks 
we did with eggs, 
as children, to show how 
they were, in reality, tiny 
load-bearing marble halls; 
while the beat of the wings of a 
butterfly in the right place, 
we are told, can create a 
hurricane across an ocean. 
        Neil Gaiman

Grace is neither gentleness nor fragility. 
Grace is treating yourself, others, and 
even inanimate objects with respect.
          Kamand Kojouri

Appreciative words are 
the most powerful force 
for good on earth!"
             George W. Crane

If we take care of the moments, 
the years will take care of themselves. 

           Maria Edgeworth

Young Things, New Things
are fragile.

Old things grow tender as well.

At this time of year,
of Crone & Infant,
Wisdom, Regret, and Insight
share Lordship with the
Fragile, Hopeful & New.

Returning to the framework of routine,
we pick up the first scent
of a new year, new decade.

One thing I know
is gratitude
for coming to this day.

I feel unexpectedly
positive and expectant.
A birdsong is telling me
that things will be better.

Glad You are Here.
Together is better.
Bump, bump bump
we go
down the funny stairs.
