a single step


A journey of a thousand miles
begins with a single step.

A single step – once taken- perception changes. This is true for long journeys or that first step through your doorway as a new day begins. 

Greet this new day. Take the step.

Nature’s pace

Welcome your day with gratitude. “Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.” 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

‘a firefly of hope…’


In the evening shadows, when twilight pulls purple lace around the sleeping trees, I walk beneath gathering clouds with regret by my side. How many things I would have done differently. How many choices I would change. But before I reach the rise of the moon, I see lights begin to go on, house by house, each a firefly of hope in the darkness. Look up, look forward, they seem to say. Leave regret to itself and live now as you would have lived then. I turn for home, walking a little faster. It is not what we have been, but what we become, that separates the night from the day.

(Steven Charleston)




“And the sun and the moon sometimes argue over who will tuck me in at night. If you think I am having more fun than anyone on this planet, you are absolutely correct.”
