There’s something about the flower that grows through the rocks,


“There’s something about the flower that grows through the rocks, the pavement; through logs and stone or brick walls…
all roses are beautiful; but the rose that emerges unexpectedly through the asphalt has a beauty of soul.
The flower that reaches through the brokenness of the wall has a beauty of spirit. You stop to look and not only to look but to cherish!
Somewhere along its journey, it decided that it would reach for what was unseen, keep going in the direction of something that wasn’t felt, it decided that it would be. That it would become.
And it did. And there is something irreplaceable about that flower”

Once you move the “but” everything else will follow.


“I was thinking about it, but…
I was going to but…
I wish I could but…
These are the excuses we give for sitting on our butts.
There are no “buts” so big they cannot be moved. Once you move the “but” everything else will follow.”

Those ambrosial mornings . . .


“These undescribed,ambrosial mornings
when a thousand birds were heard
gently twittering and ushering in the light
The Serenity, the infinite promise of such a morning…”

~ Henry David Thoreau
