Ask Not

My fellow Americans, 
ask not what your country can do for you, 
ask what you can do for your country.
– John F. Kennedy

Agreeable Friends

Animals are such agreeable friends - 
they ask no questions; 
they pass no criticisms.

Giddy Is A Grin

Giddy is a grin and giggles and that glint of goofiness in your gaze.

Become Like The Sun

Become like the sun.
If you do so, all darkness will be dispelled.
No matter what happens, 
live confidently with the conviction that you,
yourself are the “sun.
Of course, in life there are sunny days and cloudy days.
But even on cloudy days, the sun is still there.
Even when you are suffering, it is vital that you strive
to keep the sun shining brightly in your heart.

Inseparable

Like the cat 
who finds her way back home over a thousand miles, 
like the dog 
who waits for his master to arrive on the train that never comes, 
like the one 
who keeps a vigil at her master’s grave until she too can cross the bridge, 
some people and their pets 
are woven together by threads of life and they cannot, 
and will not, for long 
be separated. 
― Kate McGahan

A Cat Is


A cat is a purring parcel of paradox,
a cunning collection of contradictions.
A cat is lazy and busy, dainty and savage,
affectionate and aloof, greedy and finicky,
sound asleep in one instant,
and awake and stalking in the next.
A cat is a limp puddle of softness,
surrounding a steel-hard and ever-alert set of muscles.
... A cat has the face of a pansy flower,
and is just as velvety.
A cat holds infinity in her eyes,
and your heart in her front paws.
- Leonore Fleischer
