Courage in Stormy Seas


“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship.”

Louisa May Alcott


The word courage comes from Latin cor and Greek kardia. So take heart. Sail your ship. Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Far Away in the Sunshine

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.

I may not reach them,

but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”

Louisa May Alcott


Follow your highest aspirations . . .

and nourish peace, cultivate loving kindness, and carry the calm.

Shadow of the Week – I did not set this up but found it exactly like this on my deck after a windstorm. The shadows are few, but it’s appropriate for today. Happy Easter!
