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
Not the grief of a child
 
And you learn
To build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way
Of falling down in mid flight

After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting
For someone to bring you flowers
 
And you learn
That you really can endure
That you are really strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and you learn
With every goodbye you learn.

CALM healing space creation

i just bought some land up here in the east mountains. It is only an acre and a half but I want to set up a space on it for gardening and processing herbs for healing work. I am a disabled vet and cannot do the work up here alone. I would like to know if there is anyone in the area who would be interested in coming up and helping to build rainbow style kitchen and community space and help with creating the vision of a healing space over the next few years?See More
