  1. Fear and courage

    You will excuse me
    if I have some fear
    of those who preach that evolution
    is reflected in the color of one's skin-

    Denying their humanity,
    and done so all in secrecy.

    But I would give a different view
    that fearlessness will win day-through
    and if a fight you would begin -
    it is a fight you cannot win.

    For what has happened once before
    can not happen anymore.
    and truth relieves a heart-felt ...

    “To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.”

    'Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth. ...

    “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.

    “This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing ...

    Every morning a new arrival.

    A joy, a depression, a meanness,

    Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
    who violently sweep your house
    empty of its furniture,
    still treat each guest honorably.
    He may be clearing you out
    for some ...

    There are so many secrets of this life
    Hidden in the breeze,
    I wouldn't tell, but keep them safe
    In these melodies-
    In daytime I listen to my old, sweet friend,
    the brightest songs
    of the minstrel, to myself suspend,
    and my soul belongs
    in the windiest leaves, in a smile,
    to rise up, to fly
    In a single straight line, for a while
    for the night sky.
    My friend had peace and joy at heart,
    an angel dance
  5. life

    So I was watching this show, One Life, a nature documentary. There are no words for how beautiful this is... It held me in total fascination. The beauty of it... is truly immeasureable. A kind of mouse that runs along paths, darting and making quick turns to escape a very fast lizard, that can't make the turns quite as well. The commentator said, "For every predator. . . there is an escape artist which gladdens the heart." It couldn't be more true. Then when they got to the part ...
