"The April rain, the April rain, Comes slanting down in fitful showers, Then from the furrow shoots the grain, And banks are fledged with nestling flowers; And in grey shawl and woodland bowers The cuckoo through the April rain Calls once again."
- Mathilde Blind - "April Rain"
I wish you dear Friend a weekend with peace and that you enjoy Mother Earth beauty. With Love Ana
"The people I'm furious with are the women's liberationists. They keep getting up on soapboxes and proclaiming women are brighter than men. That's true, but it should be kept quiet or it ruins the whole racket."
- Anita Loos - New York Times, 10 February 1974
... I simply love this quote. I hope that it makes you smile With Love Ana
- Remember its quite true to say One smile is worth a dozen frowns. - It enriches those who receive, Without making poorer those who give. - Among the worlds expensive things A smile is very cheap. - The world will seem a better place And all because you smiled. - And after all this my dear Friend Just give a big one: it's Weekend
... so, I wish you a wonderful one. And, smile dear Friend With Love Ana *flower
Only a night from old to new! Always a night from old to new! And in the first day, My wishes are few: The beginning of the end Of all wars in the world That all the soldiers safe return home The beginning of the end Of the prejudice, intolerance, racism Hunger, greed, attacks to life. After that night is the first new dawn And may we can start from the beginning, Living together, without haste In union with kind Mother Earth.
... I wish you a new year full of Love and Peace my Friend Ana
"When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities, and so on. When we feel love and kindness towards others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace. And there are ways in which we can consciously work to develop feelings of love and kindness. For some of us, the most effective way to do so is through religious practice. For others it may be non-religious practices. What is important is that we each make a sincere effort to take our responsibility for each other and for the natural environment we live in seriously." HH the Dalai Lama
"A friend is someone who dances with you in the sunlight and, walks with you in the shadows. Is someone who stays there in silence and, hears what you say no mater the subject. Walks by your side and, behind you and catchs if you stumble. A FRIEND is a gift, a treasure to keep,to honour, whom we give a permanent place in our hearts."
... I love you sweet friend and, I wish you a wonderful weekend. Ana
Little children, never give Pain to things that feel and live Let the gentle robin come For the crumbs you save at home As his meat you throw along He’ll repay you with a song. Never hurt the timid hare Peeping from her green grass lair Let her come and sport and play On the lawn at close of day. The little lark goes soaring high To the bright windows of the sky Singing as if t'were always spring And fluttering on an untired wing Oh! Let him sing his happy song Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.
Let Me Live The darkness is closing in Soon I will be gone Why do I deserve this? I've done nothing wrong. I'm thrown in to a crate I feel so cold and alone I wonder what's next The future is unknown. Hundreds of others around me Screaming for their parents I know they will not come They've been shot protecting us. Everyday this happens Innocent animals killed for money Another day, another kill It's not the one bit funny. Do your self a favour If not for you, for your future kids Save us endangered animals Please just let us live! by Amy Carnes (aged 10)
There's nothing as nice As someone who shares, Your laughter, your secrets, Your wishes and cares, Someone who's there Through your good times and tears, Who stays by your side As your friend through the years.
"We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence."
