IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing. ~Eugene Delacroix
.
Today I am grateful...
  • for the purple beach ball that has been outside my door for the past three days. Something about it being there is comforting.
  • that it is decidedly cooler outside this morning. 67ยบ!
  • that yesterday was a fulfilling workday
  • how short the days feel anymore because they are full and satisfying and contain exactly what I need
  • for the quiet stirring in my soul when I hear another alcoholic tell where they came from

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth. ~Mahatma Gandhi

Wow. A purple beach ball. Cool.

It's nice to see Mahatma dropping by.

As the seasons change, and twilight lengthens, purple beach balls instinctively huddle close by the doorsteps. It has always been that way.

I'm looking for positives today and you supplied several. Thanks!

I love the Delacroix quote. I think that's why some people accomplish so little...always waiting for perfection.

I find this time of year usually very happy.

Blessings and aloha...

my favorite part of other's sharing is when they talk about the "what happened" and their spiritual comes in.

we get stray balls in our yard sometimes and i always enjoy them too. what is up with that? like it's a visitor of some kind :)
