It could happen any time, tornado,
earthquake, Armageddon. It could happen.
Or sunshine, love, salvation.
It could, you know. That’s why we wake
and look out — no guarantees
in this life.
But some bonuses, like morning,
like right now, like noon,
Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
If the only prayer you said in your entire life was ‘thank you’, that would be enough.
Drawing is your brain transferring your idea, your knowledge, your intentions, from the electrical storm cloud at its center, through synapses and nerve endings, through the pencil in your hand, through your fingers, until it is captured in permanence on the page, in physical space. It is, I have come to appreciate, a fundamental act of creation.

You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.
Sri Swami Satchidananda
I believe in pink.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and
I believe in miracles.
The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands, I used to hold.
Simce you went away, the days grow long
and soon I’ll hear old winter’s song.
But I miss you most of all, my darling
when autumn leaves start to fall.
1945 Les feuilles mortes
Joseph Kosma, Jacques Prévert
Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
When you wake up every day you have two choices. You can either be positive or negative, an optimist or a pessimist. I choose to be an optimist.
It’s all a matter of perspective.
