the journey

Today is full of rivers to ford, mountains to climb, valleys to traverse

The rivers run swift, the mountains leave you breathless and the valleys may cloud your eyes

The parking lots run rampant

The roads are engaging (if not enraging)

Our mind lead us to deception, indifference and intolerance while a focus from our hearts will forever lead to a level of understanding 

The mountains are steep

The rivers ice cold

The valleys are tiring
(and somewhere along the way there may be a swarm of green heads that descend upon you) 

The checkout line works my patience
The incompetence of the world tries me

Yet my heart longs for differences

My heart sees the love - the beauty - the positive - the good - the right - the joy - the happiness

But I must pursue these feelings, these emotions - I must work for them, despite the depression, the failures and inadequacies I posses, I must focus my heart on what is good and right

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death. Leonardo da Vinci

"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things" God

"Those who look to him are radiant" God
