Hello Irina:It is the words of e.e. cummings, a poet we very much admire and whose work we find always of interest and meaning, that particularly appeal to us in this post.We very much hope that you are enjoying a relaxing late summer weekend.
Hello Irina!A substantial piece of wisdom with which to start the week.......it can be quite a challenge to comfortably engage with every experience!Wishing you a joyful week,Ruby
And in my own way, I am a fighter too, and a feisty one at that. I saw it in my mother who while she was dying, was fighting not to keep LIVING, but to die having lived bravely. I saw it in my father who never gave up even when his breath was compromised. Taking his small oxygen can around the block for his daily walked while living with lung cancer spoke volumes of perseverance. Now it is my turn. How will I be different? How will I demonstrate perseverance in the face of change? Only day by day will tell but I confess that while it is a lonely journey, having friends along the way like you make the trajectory into a new phase of life worth the effort. Anita
P.S. That horse and ANY IMAGE of one always makes my day!

I know this well.... I wish someone had told me much earlier "To Be Outstanding - Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable"....blessings.
Good morning beautiful friend....I cannot get over how your sentiments here coincide with my next post. AND you are playing a cello piece that makes my heart strings weep with joy.....shhhhhhhh.....don't let a certain little "film maker" hear that!!!! Thank you for revisiting my blog. As you can see, the photos have been reduced a tad. I think they are nice that way. AND THE DIVINE MISS M.!!!!!!! I LOVE HER. I know she can get a bit RAW at times, but the woman has the ability to make you LAUGH, ROLL YOUR EYES and CRY. Now that is an artist! How fortunate that you were able to get such close seating for your mother! I bet she was just thrilled!LOVE! Anita
Hi dear friend...are you back to school tomorrow? I am back with students and can't wait. Thank you for your sweet comments and wishing you a wonderful September. I love your quotes...xoox hugs
Surely, when you get used to painful situation, in actuality-you learn to be comfortable with the discomfort.
