“Tell your friend that in his death,
a part of you dies and goes with him.
Wherever he goes, you also go.
He will not be alone.”

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” 
  ~ Roger Crawford
This young man personifies courage in the face of challenge.I see him playing his heart out at Findlay Market in Cincinnati, Ohio every now and then and thank him for the gift of perspective in my life and exposing my own frailties.

Every morning when I wake up I say,

I’ll never be as young as I am today.
Today is the youngest day of the rest of my life. 

Get up and do something fun.  
~Rochelle Ford  

At 76 years old,  metal sculptor Ford has a very wise attitude. Here’s wishing you each and all the very best in 2014 and beyond.  Make every day count!

“Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be…” 
~ William Wordsworth

~ Live Life… Move Into Love



“Don’t try to understand life. Live it!
Don’t try to understand love. Move into love.
Then you will know…
and all that knowing will come out of your experiencing.
The more you know…
the more you know that much remains to be known.”
~ Osho,  Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously
