Significance in Obscurity

“Our significance isn’t found in fame or fortune, but in knowledge that we have been links in the great Cosmic chain. Our faithfulness, even in obscurity, will yield results that can only be calculated in eternity.”

reasons to live one more, the next, and another day

“If I can stop one heart from breaking”

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one Life the Aching,
Or cool one in Pain,

Or help one fainting Robin
Unto his Nest again,
I shall not live in Vain.

—Emily Dickinson.

the best convictions are those that seek to benefit the self the least—they also the ones that shine the strongest in life’s most extraordinary circumstances.

Ever Had Someone

Truly Take you Somewhere?

 

Advent

Of something
Fresh and rare—

Eager like the
Playful
Spring Breeze,

Blowing
Your loose
Lettuce

up,
Up,

and       awaaayy—

An enigmatic
Encounter,

So New
and
Ancient

Once again.

The Small Things

“Be faithful in the small things, because it is in them that your strength lies.”
–Saint Teresa.

What is Better?

“What is better, to be born good, or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?”
—Paarthurnax. 

Love at Midtown

I fell
In Love
With a fine,
Young Lady

From the Other
Side
Of town—

She North
And I South—

Two neighborhoods, separate lives,
And both having
Miraculously crossed,

Would never
Once
Be
The same.

Reminder

” …there was a language in the world that everyone understood…It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.”

—Paulo Coelho.

Dear Valentine

black_heart

Forget me not
For offering always

this Black, Tainted—
but Genuine—
and still Naive

Heart.
