Remember

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it…always.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

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.

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

Hobbies

“Hobbies are for people that don’t like what they’re doing.”
~ Stefan Sagmeister

UPDATE: I swear Frankie was sitting up a moment ago…fortunately he’s got a good reading list

Compassion

“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”
~ Lao Tzu

UPDATE: Frankie’s still in hospital for observation but is being well treated and doted on by the angelic staff and is possibly doing some constructive networking.

Injury

“I really loved animals when I was little – my friend and I had an imaginary vet’s office; we would mime doing surgery on animals. We treated more injuries than illnesses – fixing a baby bear with a broken leg, removing a tumor. Of course, our surgeries would take about five seconds; that’s how good we were.”
~ Hannah Murray

Note: Frankie is in hospital tonight with a possible spine injury, hopefully minor, thank you for your well wishes, we’ll keep you updated. Those sticks will be answerable!

Holidays

“I’ve never quite worked out how to do holidays. I’ve got a house in France which I suppose is a kind of holiday house. But it’s really only so I can go on drawing when I get there. I’m never far away from the feeling that I want to be getting on with something.”
~ Quentin Blake

Differently

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
~ Terry Pratchett
