Favorite Thoughts

Sit down, relax
Breathe and smile.
Be happy, be peaceful
Let's practice the smiling yoga.
Smile. Smile even more. Smile as if you were enlightened.
Happy, blissful, delighted.
A happy camper on the shore of nirvana's shining sea.
Smile. Grin. Be silly
Breathing in. Relax your mind.
Breathing out, smile, smile, smile,
And smile.
Buddhas have more fun.
So try to look as enlightened as you can.
Why pretend to be unhappy, harried, and miserable?
Since we all pretend anyway,
Why no... read more

Across the wall of the world,
A River sings a beautiful song.
It says, come, rest here by my side.

Each of you a bordered country,
Delicate and strangely made, proud,
Yet, thrusting perpetually under siege.

Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon my shore.
Currents of debris upon my breast.

Yet, today, I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more.
Come, clad in pace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when
I and the Tree an... read more

In beauty, may I walk.
All day long, may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.

Beauty will I possess again.
Beautiful birds...
Beautiful joyful birds...

On the trail marked with pollen, may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet, may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.

With beauty, may I walk.
With beauty before me, may I walk.
With beauty behind me, may I walk.
With beauty above me, may I walk.
With beauty all around me, may I walk.

In old age, wan... read more

"Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."

about me
The best of times come from the simplest of things - putz'n b'out town, hiking, gardening, canoeing, exploring, giving the day to a good book, cook'n w/friends, late night swims - but, I'm happiest outside anywhere water or bird song can be heard. I believe the best thing to do with life is to spread light and love to all those around you, so spiritually as I'm creating my life, I intentionally work at being happy, filling my life with joy & good adventure, and at being open to others.

I go hiking as often as possible. I'm often seen lugging lots of camera and recording gear with me. I've been taking photos of woodland plants and creatures fun and for a project that I'm crafting.
