Square Root Love

“Don’t ask what the world needs. 
Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.

Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
~ Howard Thurman

"Living well is an art that can be developed: 
a love of life and ability to take great pleasure from small offerings
and assurance that the world owes you nothing 
and that every gift is exactly that, a gift. "
~Maya Angelou


Ordinary Perfection

"For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Music" Rain by Priscilla Ahn

I will seek elegance rather than luxury,
refinement rather than fashion.
I will seek to be worthy more than respectable,
wealthy and not rich.

I will study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, and act frankly.

I will listen to stars and birds, babes and sages,
with an open heart.
I will bear all things cheerfully, do all things bravely await
occasions and hurry never.

In a word I will let the spiritual, unbidden and
unconscious grow up through the common.
