i'm very excited for my thesis research workshop.  and i'm excited for it to be over.  All this hard work is cramping my style...all of this research about connectedness to nature cuts into my time to actually connect to nature!  Isn't it ironic...don't ya think?

ours is not to question why...

 but i have to admit...i do ask it.  when i ask
why pain?

then i have to ask
why joy?

why suffering?

and that always leads to

why love?

i know the answer...and i'm comforted because it always begins and ends with love.  love wins and i can find peace in that.

today i am grateful to be a teacher....especially because i learn so much.  the opportunities available for learning compassion, patience and gratitude are limitless.

my masterpiece

there are few things to control in this life. at times i feel it spiraling around me, out of tangible reach. what i can do, what i can change is my life, my attitude, my influence, my inner world and desires.  that is what i have to give to the world and i am working to make it beautiful.
