Motivate Define

 A   L   O   H   A  !

First Rainbow of 2021

If you surrendered 

to the air, 

you could ride it.

Toni Morrison

I can't shake the conviction 

that 2021

will surprise, comfort

& delight us

in many ways!

You ride out the downturn 

and you're usually 

rewarded in the end.

       John Buckingham

Sorrow prepares you for joy. 

It violently sweeps everything 

out of your house, so that 

new joy can find 

space to enter. 

It shakes the yellow leaves 

from the bough 

of your heart, so that 

fresh, green leaves can 

grow in their place. 

It pulls up the rotten roots, 

so that new roots hidden 

beneath have room to grow.


Your Loves motivate

and define you.


We Love YOU,

                  Cloudia & Pixie
