be prepared to row…

“He that embarks on the voyage of life will always wish to advance rather by the impulse of the wind than the strokes of the oar; and many fold in their passage; while they lie waiting for the gale.’” Samuel Johnson, 1770

A State of Mind, A State of Being………..

From the Daily Mail/UK: 12 y/o Athena Orchard recently died from a cancerous tumor on her spine. After her death, the parents were tidying her room and moved a mirror leaning against the wall. On the back of the mirror they found a long list of positive phrases the young girl had posted to the backing of the mirror. 

A young girl, fighting or enduring cancer, the mind struggles and seeks positive input. She kept this secret for a later discovery for those left behind? Also, for her own passage through that ordeal? Today, for us? A state of mind, day by day, to make a choice about life, and perhaps death.

Life: Radiance On High

Radiance On High SwittersB

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Allen Saunders

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

Often, I read such inspirational words and see the logic, but cannot connect to the mental mission to get there. Connecting the motivational dots to happiness. Hmm? Sometimes its there and sometimes its as if I am waving at, reaching for it, in the middle of a night’s dream….just out of reach. Perhaps we are meant to go our own way with verve?

So…I will go with: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” Hunter S. Thompson

Photography: Fall in a Business Park

Are you familiar with those two and three story red brick buildings that cluster together on sweeping, tree lined streets? Business parks, in areas just outside the urban boundary, that house all manner of upscale businesses, consultants and wood paneled walls. This morning I arrived a bit early and sat waiting in my rig as it rained. Preparing for yet another ‘let’s get motivated & focused’ session re ‘sales and the sales person’s personality’. Which is really saying how to manage ops and egos. So, this photo was eye catching from afar.

Life: In The Crucible……………….

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

In one of those quiet rooms in a hospital; down the hallway from some harsh reality. SwittersB
