I love the sound of a mower in the distance

and the sound of sleep up close.

I love it when the ones I adore give assistance

just when I need it the most.

I love how the sun with it's rays enhances

and makes even tiny things shine.

I love when I'm given new chances

to take-- leavin old ones behind.

I love having no expectations

and trying to live with grace.

I love not wanting ovations

while wearing this smile on my face.

Random thoughts the day after a memorial service for a friend:

-Don't let your degrees become degrees of separation.

-Don't let your divisions multiply.

-Live deeply in the time you've been given.

-Say hello to a stranger. And mean it.

-Wonder out loud.

-There is no harbor big enough for bitterness.

-Be clever, not sneaky.

-Be industrious, not busy.

-Kindness is never a waste of time.

-You needn't think a lot to be profound.

-Do what you do with vigor.

-Laugh at yourself...with others.

-Celebrate others' victories like you would your own.

I realize that these are not new thoughts, but I wanted to get them said, that's all.
Live a nice day!
