Pieces of Mind. . .

 

If it were not for those who make connections with events,  mankind long ago would have eaten dirt.  And it would have been the end of the sojourn.

*****

Heaven opens momentarily and closes  but the glimpses from the view linger and haunt one forever.

*****

We endure those things we are powerless to change, no matter how wise the intentions.

*****

Commitments, destined or chosen, determine choices and sometimes close choices completely.  Conscience will help determine needed adjustments in thinking.

*****

It is the lighted candle that sparks the heavens.

*****

Life is a balanced judgment.

*****

In the silence of who we are,  we take flight.

*****

When we ravage the psyche of children,  they in turn have difficulty cherishing anything with reverence,  especially their Earth Mother.

*****

You must give them tools with which to work, not crutches.  Tools.

*****

It is not the mystery of life which stuns man and does not beguile him to further thought.  It is the work involved.

*****

The long face of gloom does not become the human at all in the face of so many small victories, but the constant  grin bespeaks an empty head too.

*****

Considering the condition of the world and considering who we confine to psychiatric wards,  the question should arise,  how one defines who is mad in a world gone mad?
