Wander in Simplicity

“Let your mind wander in simplicity, blend your spirit with the vastness, follow along with things the way they are, and make no room for personal views – then the world will be governed.”

~ Zhuangzi

Make Mistakes

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.”

~ Neil Gaiman

On the Road Again

On the road again
Just can’t wait to get on the road again
The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

~ Willie Nelson

UPDATE: Frankie’s been going for drives to help him alleviate some of his doggie recovery boredom. We think it’ll be awhile yet, physio allowing, to actually get on the road again, but we can tell by the tapping of his paws to the music it will happen.

Bridges

Jesus said, “Greater things you shall do…” Become a peace builder, a bridge builder, not a destroyer, and the way you do that is through friendships and relationships, and through authentic character.
~ Ravi Zacharias

Nature

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”
~ William Shakespeare

UPDATE: This is a photo of a previous athletic Frankie at the beach, as long as he’s aspiring that way I have no intention of photoshopping him elsewhere, he’s hopping, skipping, falling occasionally and rebalancing progressively every day.

Reality

“There’s no reality except the one contained within us. That’s why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside themselves for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself.”
~ Hermann Hesse

Goings

“I wonder where we are going,” I said.
“Wherever the way is going,” Exi replied calmly.
“But where do you suppose the way is going?”
“Wherever we go.”
“That doesn’t really make sense, does it?”
“Oh, yes. Quite good sense.”
“Why?”
“Do you know any method by which you can go one way and your path another? Not the path, but your path?”
“Well-” I hesitated. “Well, if you put it that way, I guess not. But what about crossroads? Couldn’t you choose the wrong one?”
“I suppose you could. However, if it was the wrong way you chose, it would still be your way, wouldn’t it?”
“Yes,” I answered, “yes, it probably would.”
