Wild Fact About Me Where would I begin?? lol
My Philosophy Trials can make us better or bitter... It's a choice.

Make no judgements where you have no compassion. ~ Anne McCaffrey

With every deed you are sowing a seed, though the harvest you may not see. ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

**I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience... not the other way around. And realizing this has changed my perspective & understanding on everything.

I believe in the Ripple Effect...
What Gives Me Hope Places like this... and people who care and believe we can make a difference.

A baby's smile... full of innocence, wonder, and unabashed joy.

The innocence and purity of children.

The innocence, purity, and unconditional love of animals.

I believe the world as a whole... is undergoing a spiritual awakening.

Random act's of kindness... they're not so difficult... and they also give SO much to the giver... why do so many consider this such a foreign concept?

Noble acts in this chaotic and sometimes very discouraging world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why Anna B... in spirit now. She was my stand in grandmother who was a tenant and family friend who lived upstairs from us thruout my childhood... She was full of endless love, taught me much, and influenced my childhood profoundly... greatly impacting who I am today.

My mother... whom I am proud to call my best friend, as well as Mom.

My two deceased brother's... losing them so young... and in the ways in which they passed... affected me in ways I cannot begin to describe. (One to suicide at age 28 when I was 19... one to AIDS complications when I was 28 and he was 39.)

Don... a friend who's fallen out of touch... but who helped me see possibilities, shed old fears & constraints, and embrace... me.

My animal companion's... past and present.

More, but that's enough to share here. :)

Quotation We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too. ~ Maíread Maguire

There is no Challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself. ~ Michael F. Staley

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. ~ Helen Keller

To be loved for what one is, is the greatest exception. ~ Goethe

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. ~ Mahandas Gandhi

    "In the glow of the dawn,
    Welcome a new day,
    Greet the golden sunlight or rain,
    Nature in all its subtlety.
    Whip of the wind,
    Earth unfolds,
    Softly falling rain,
    Growing plants and buds blossoming.
    Visions of the earth, with glories of nature,
    Beauty of the daffodils,
    Sunshine and rain from a rainbow,
    Awe! Nature in full bloom."

    - Blanche Black - "Springtime"


     I wish you a great Spring week
    my dear Friend.

    "Grown men can learn from
    very little children for the hearts
    of the little children are pure.
    Therefore, the Great Spirit
    may show to them many things
    which older people miss."

    - Black Elk - Oglala Sioux Holy Man

    ... listen the children's wisdom dear Friend.
    They are the future.

    A hundred hearts would be too few
    to carry all my love for you my Friend.
    Some love lasts a lifetime.
    True love lasts forever.
    That is the time that Friend's Love lasts.


    ... I wish you my dearest Friend
    a bright Valentine's Day

    "The Beautiful Earth"

    The glitening sun is shining
    On the sparkling water,
    The sparkling water is connecting
    To the blue endless ocean
    That is great and is as beautiful
    As a bachelor button flower,
    So simple and perfect 
    Blue and red
    Like the sunset sky
    The glorious sunset
    That brings peace
    For me, for you, for all
    That brings peace to Mother Earth!

    ... I wish you a weekend
    full of peace my sweet friend
    With Love

    A butterfly in the wind

    A child is...
    A butterfly in the wind,
    Some can fly higher than others;
    But each one flies the best they can.
    Why compare one against the other?
    Each one is different!
    Each one is special!
    Each one is beautiful!

    I wish you a great friday and 
    a wonderful weekend my special friend 
    With Love

    "Great spirits have always found
    violent opposition from mediocrities.
    The latter cannot understand it
    when a man does not thoughtlessly
    submit to hereditary prejudices,
    but honestly and courageously
    uses his intelligence and
    fulfills the duty to express the results
    of his thought in clear form."
    Albert Einstein

    "Unless each day can be looked back
    upon by everyone as one in which
     we have had some fun, some joy,
     some real satisfaction, that day is a loss."

    ... so sweet friend Carpe diem and be happy

    What is a Poem
     A poem is hidden in the soundlessspeechless soft clouds
    Tossing turning twisting
    in the crystal clear aquamarine sky
    Look inside a pleasing pretty flower
    Climb immeasurable immenseimpressive mountains
    If you find a poem handle it carefully
    Like a newborn puppy
    For a poem can die or slip through fingers
    Like creamy butter
    And be lost in the dark streets
    Look in places where you
     have never been before
    And there you might find a poem
    Lost somewhere in the soft clouds
    The clear sky or a pretty flower
    Waiting for you!
    by Amber Hickman (aged 8)
