Thoughts for Today

"Oh, the comfort,
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but to pour them all out, just as they are,
chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping,
and then, with the breath of kindness,
blow the rest away."

- George Eliot

"Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply,
to enjoy simply,
to think freely,
to risk life,
to be needed."

- Storm Jamison

Love that one myself. Just some thoughts that were going through my mind this morning over coffee before business Hell kicked in.

Calming lunch. Yes, life is good...

Thanks Barabond. I like to throw something tame and meaningful in every now and then.

I have bared
all I can be
before you

but ,for the garden
I have become,
you are an only flower.

Is it July yet? When I was in my early 20's I had a card with the Eliot quote and have kept it all these years. Only it just went as far as "...nor measure words." Never heard the rest before.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

lol...I'm thinkin December might be better this year, lol. I can't wait to meet you! Would love to visit the North Shore and watch the surfing during this time...hear it's amazing.

This quote comes from the book The Treasure Chest . It's a collection of works by great minds spanning back many centuries.

I've posted this damn comment 3 times today...maybe it'll stick this time.

The quote came from the book The Treasure Chest...a collection of quotes from great minds over many centuries. I stumbled upon my copy at a flea market...mahogany leather, printed in 1965, mint condition...don't think they knew what they had.'s not July, dammit! Christmas on North Shore is sounding good right now. I've never been over during the winter months. Would love to watch the surf competitions along the Pipeline.

For now I'll just sit here in my tropical pink office and dream...
