this too shall pass. and it is. it's passing.


i'm feeling really lovely today. 

so much better. 

maybe its because when i get home from work tonight i get to begin reassembling my room. 

and i get to put a blanket back on my bed. 

and this will inevitably organize my mind. 

and maybe it's because i'm thinking tomorrow night, with pettitte at the helm (he's a pitcher), the yanks will win the alcs title. 

and maybe it's because i have you all with your lovely and supportive comments.



so feast your eyes on these thoughts and images which i'll carry with me today and through the weekend.



a truce to your volumes, your studies, give o'er: for books cannot teach you of love's marvelous lore.
hafiz


remember just for one minute of the day, it would be best to try looking upon yourself more as God does, for She knows your true royal nature.
hafiz


the sky where we live is no place to lose your wings so love, love, love.
hafiz


i wish i could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.
hafiz


when no one is looking i swallow deserts and clouds and chew on mountains knowing they are sweet bones! when no one is looking and i want to kiss God, i just lift my own hand to my mouth.
hafiz


exaggeration is truth that has lost its temper.
kahil gibran


i prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires.
kahil gibran


much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. 
kahil gibran


love and doubt have never been on speaking terms.
kahil gibran


out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
kahil gibran


keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does now bow before children.
kahil gibran


ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
hafiz


an eye for an eye and the whole world would be blind.
kahil gibran
