Illumination can arise

Do not resent them -- the simple repetitive tasks of daily life --
for in these quiet moments illumination can arise.

Not according to plan...

Sometimes things just don't work out;
"the best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men, gang aft agley."
The question then becomes -- how do we make the best of it?
How can we make this work?

Support systems

One of the gifts of those low tide moments in our lives:
they expose the strength and depth of our support systems --
the friends, the family, and faith that keep us straight and true.

When things are looking dark

When things are looking dark, it gives us hope
to take the long view; to trust and to believe
in the dawning of the age that's yet to come.

Still waters

May this walk beside still waters restore your soul...

Protective coloration

Sometimes protective coloration 
isn't about blending in to disappear.
Sometimes it's just about matching, to look like you belong,
but standing out enough so no one steps on you...
What choices will you make today
that won't be quite what you want or believe
but simply ensure you fit in with the crowd?

Encircled from afar
by the sun, the moon and stars,
How can we fail to realize
how fortunate we are?
