Rest in peace, Callie, our beautiful Zen cat. How lucky we were to spend part of our journey on this earth with you.
Interesting to contemplate that Steve Jobs' father was a Syrian refugree when he came to this country. If he hadn't emigrated here, Steve Jobs wouldn't have started Apple and our world would be very different.
We can copy others, we can live to please others, or we can discover that which is unique and precious to us, and paint that, become that. It is a task which takes a lifetime.
- Carl Rogers
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;
And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum-trees in tremulous white;
Robins will wear their feathery fire
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;
And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.
Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;
And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.
