there is a kind of symmetry to life - the cyclical ups and downs that we all have - tied to time, tides, hormones or the whatever. and as i pondered this weekend - what to write about - what inspired me creatively, or what caught my eye (besides my obsession with pinterest) i found myself backing away from the computer. things i did find myself doing were reading - nay devouring - a new author's books (sarah addison allen), cooking and thinking about things to make a home. that nesting syndrome that i seem to have in the spring - much like the birds i saw this weekend with twigs in their beaks.
there was much acceptance work this weekend - some from unexpected places and some in finding out how a friend feels their feelings. there is that acceptance of each other. and in that i found this quote - well, almost tripped on it this morning ... "love and kindness are never wasted. they always make a difference. they bless the one who receives them and they bless you, the giver." - barbara de angelis
i added four new quotes to my quotes journal this week - all of them speak to me. i've kept one of these for quite a while now. when i'm restless or trying to make a decision, i turn to this journal to seek advice and think about what to do next. there are so many wise people out there....but you know what, there also people just like me who are just trying to figure it all out...they too have wisdom to share.
