"In the City of God, St. Augustine tells the story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great, who asked him “how dare he molest the sea.” “How dare you molest the whole world” the pirate replied. “Because I do it with a little ship only, I am called a thief; you, doing it with a great navy, are called an emperor.”

Comes the Dawn

Comes The Dawn

By Veronica A. Shoffstall



After a while you learn

The subtle difference between

Holding a hand and chaining a soul

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning

And company doesn’t always mean security.

 

And you begin to learn

That kisses aren’t contracts

And presents aren’t promises

And you begin to accept your defeats

With your head up and your eyes ahead

With the grace of a woman…

poem

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

- Sarah Teasdale

lessons

this weekend we celebrate harvests and give thanks for all our many blessings.  I am especially giving thanks for the Occupy Movement which is the new page of the peaceful Revolution long overdue.

 

love, trust, respect, honor, communication, sharing...

 

it's about time We the People taught the 1% and their minions some REAL lessons of life.

A huge thanks to everyone who helped pass on information and clues; searched the woods and rappelled down cliffs. Family, law enforcement and search and rescue teams joined together to bring Marie home to South Lake Tahoe.

Well... there was one friend she knew who had quite a large share of troubles herself. But this friend seemed to be able to move through her troubles and come out the other side with her head still held high. The more…

mud

the Great Spirit does not need us to report on the dirt in the world, as the Creator thereof S)He is well aware of its existence;

 

we were sent here to search out the jewels hidden in the mud, clean them and polish them until they shine.  and when we bring them to HaShem (means the Name in the Hebrew language), the angels make a crown of them saying, "Look what Your children have made for You out of the mud".
