“The only thing we have in this world that is utterly and intrinsically ours is our integrity.” ~ Mira Grant

One- to find the universal elements enough;
All- to find the air and the water exhilarating;
One- to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter…
All- to be thrilled by the stars at night;
One- to be elated over a bird’s nest, or a wild flower in spring –
All- these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~ John Burroughs

Quotes & Readings

“I want to love you without clutching, appreciate you without judging, join you without invading, invite you without demanding, leave you without guilt, criticize you without blaming, and help you without insulting. If I can have the same from you, then we can truly meet and enrich each other.” ~ Virginia Satir

“The face of love is variable. I am able to love without demanding that my relationships assume the structures and forms I might choose for them. My love is fluid, flexible, committed, creative. My love allows people and events to unfold as they need. My love is not controlling. It does not dictate or demand. My love allows those I love the freedom to assume the forms most true to them. I release all those I love from my preconceptions of their path. I allow them the dignity of self-definition while I offer them a constant love that is every variable in shape.” ~ Julia Cameron

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?
