Live in rooms full of light
Avoid heavy food
Be moderate in the drinking of wine
Take massage, baths, exercise, and gymnastics
Fight insomnia with gentle rocking or the sound of running water
Change surroundings and take long journeys
Strictly avoid frightening ideas
Indulge in cheerful conversation and amusements
Listen to music.
~ A. Cornelius Celsus, c. 25 BCE – c. 50 CE)
Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it, of course.
~ Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book
Myths are public dreams. Dreams are private myths. By finding your dream world and following it through, it will lead you to the myth world in which you live.
~ Joseph Campbell
Snow was falling
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
~ Mary Oliver
The whole of life — even the hard — is made up of the minute parts, and if I miss the infinitesimals, I miss the whole. These are new language lessons, and I live them out. There is a way to live the big of giving thanks in all things. It is this: to give thanks in this one small thing. The moments will add up.
~ Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
Creativity is the Blue Heron within us waiting to fly; through her imagination, all things become possible.

Thank you for stopping by. I’ll be back soon. Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual . . . O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
~ Henry David Thoreau
