Friendships and Endurance

I’ve had a lot of time to think recently. A lot of time to myself. Some of that time has been incredibly therapeutic but sometimes all of that noise and all of the voices of doubt creep in on all the joy in the world. One of my favorite all time movie quotes comes from Too…

Quote of the Day – Barbara Brown Taylor on Faith

Today’s quote really doesn’t need much introduction. I think it really does speak for itself. It’s message is bold and open. To make bread or love, to dig in the earth, to feed an animal or cook for a stranger — these activities require no extensive commentary, no lucid theology. All they require is someone…

Cave Dwelling

I heard yesterday (Saturday) was going to be really hot, so I thought it would be cool (pun intended) to hide inside the earth for a bit. Near Mt. St. Helens, Washington, there’s this part of the park called Ape Caves, which is a former lava tube. (Used under creative commons, thanks iwona_kellie! As we…

Quote of the Day – Kahlil Gibran on Friendship

I’m a big fan of Mr. Gibran, his words soothed a really rough patch in my life. I still go back and read some of his passages when I need a little extra “oophf.” I’d quote him everyday, but, you’d get bored. 🙂 In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of…

Quote of the Day – Alfred Stieglitz on Today

Today’s quote is inspired by the World Domination Summit going on in Portland, Oregon. I’m not there but many of my friends are and I’m watching from afar. Seems like such a powerful thing, to live in the moment, and it’s maybe the hardest thing to do. Welcome to Portland WDSers! I have always been…

Quote of the Day – Judith Viorst on Friendship and Laughter

I met some new friends yesterday, or rather, I met them in person. It’s amazing to me, something so simple as connecting with others can bring so much joy to your day. Yesterday, I got to connect with people I met on the internet, yet, it felt like I’d known them for years. Fast-friendship, made…

Quote of the Day – Robert Harris on Worry

Heh. This is surely something I struggle with. I over-engineer things all the time, it’s part of my charm. The art of life is to deal with one’s problems as they arise; rather than destoy your spirit by worrying about them too far in advance. – Robert Harris

Quote of the Day – Victor Hugo on Love

It’s true. So much can be said by just one look, a furtive glance, and a wink of the eye. That’s the right moment, when nothing has to be said, yet, everything has been said. The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved…

Photo of the Day – Saturday Sunburst Summer Seasons

From an event this weekend past. I was hanging out with some friends, including some drag queens. This photo is of a friend of mine, I’m off to the side, the sunlight was in the way, but made a pretty awesome shot.

Quote of the Day – George Carlin on Teams

I ran across the attached photo today, and I searched for a quote which allowed me to us the photo, fittingly, it’s George Carlin. Happy Monday, my friends. I often warn people: Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe…
