The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain,
the sound of wind in a primeval wood,
and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.
O for a summer noon,
when light and breeze
Sport on the grass,
like ripples o’er a lake
Alive with freshness!
when the full round Sun,
With the Creator’s smile upon his face,
Walks like a prince of glory through the path
Of Heaven!—Thou vast,
and ever-glorious sky,
Mantling the earth with thy majestic robe…
“You can’t use up creativity.
The more you use,
the more you have.”
“Others have seen what is and asked why.
I have seen what could be and asked why not. ”
“To be creative means to be in love with life.
You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty,
you want to bring a little more music to it,
a little more poetry to it,
a little more dance to it.”
“A circle has no beginning and no ending. The circle of blessings can begin at any point within it. The circle is made up of quiet actions, love, simple gratitude, forgiveness, generous gifts, trust, precious memories, a heart that knows what to remember and what to forget.”
Dear Father, thank you for all you have given me, for all you have taught me, and for all the good times still to come. Amen.
