"Some people are having wonderful lives right now, but they do not actually realize it."
John O’Donohue
When you beautify your mind, you beautify your world. You learn to see differently. In what seemed like dead situations, secret possibilities and invitations begin to open before you. 

-John O’Donohue
"I know a lot of fancy words
I tear them from my heart and my tongue
Then I pray"
Mary Oliver
The weekend is off to a lovely start.

"Goodnight and great love to you. We see the same stars."
George Mallory, from a letter to his wife Ruth during the 1921 Everest Reconnaissance Expedition
Driving my baby back up to school today.

"I’ll be your deep breath,
I’ll be your simple relief,
I’ll be home to you."

…kill yourself, and hundreds of other people die…
I will give badges to everyone who’s figured
this out about suicide, and hence
refused it. I am grateful. Stay. Thank
you for staying. Please stay. You
are my hero for staying. I know
about it, and am grateful you stay.

~Jennifer Hecht
I will remember how beautiful it is to hike in a soft rain— everything glows.
