 "A photograph shouldn't 
be just a picture, 
it should be 
a philosophy."

Down is Just a Point Of View

"Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
'Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
'Til in Heaven the deed appears -
Pass it on."
     Henry Burton

"Those who play rarely 
become brittle in the 
face of stress or lose the 
healing capacity 
for humor. "

"Our world grows smaller, but 
it grows dearer and greater. 
Simple things have a 
new charm for us, and we 
suddenly realize that we 
have been renouncing 
all that is greatest
 and best, in our pursuit 
of some phantom.”

such a luxury sometimes.”

"I arise today
Through the 
Strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire.
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock. "
         Saint Patrick

"Go out, go out 
I beg of you     
And taste the beauty 
of the wild.     
Behold the miracle 
of the earth     
With all the wonder 
of a child. "

Street Chalk - San Rafael

"Nature is 
man's teacher.     
She unfolds her 
treasure to his search,    
unseals his eye, 
illumes his mind,     
and purifies his heart;      
an influence breathes 
from all the sights and 
sounds of her existence."

Calmness is a superpower. 
The ability to not overreact 
or take things personally 
keeps your mind clear 
and your heart at peace.

 "Tears of joy are like 
the summer rain drops 
pierced by sunbeams."
            Hosea Ballou

"Petting, scratching, and 
cuddling a dog could be 
as soothing to the mind and 
heart as deep meditation and 
almost as good for the soul 
as prayer."

"Summer is the annual 
permission slip

count for something. -

- To lie in the grass
and count the stars. 
To sit on a branch 
and study the clouds."

"If the sight of the blue skies 
fills you with joy, if a

in the fields has power to 
move you, if the simple things 
of nature have a message that 
you understand, rejoice, for 
your soul is alive."

 A  L  O  H  A !  

Strictly Tolerant

A  L  O  H  A !
 I have developed a happy gift 
in how I view other people.
Normally we see strangers in the world, 
with a subgroup of  people we 'know'
family & friends.

Somehow I have 
reached the point where it is 
someone's son, someone's mother, 
someone with a story and a 
struggle that I see. 

If you saw your 
friend's elderly mother 
driving slowly in traffic, your 
heart might go out to her, 
you have seen her timidity 
and gentleness. She is
 a lovely person, just trying to 
keep up with mobility and with life. 

You would not shout or frighten her 
for slowing you down. But someone 
would and does sometimes. 
Don't be that person, seeing 
people only as means 
or obstacles. Know that they
are not perfect - just like yourself. 


The Chinese say: 
"Be tolerant of others and 
strict with yourself." 
Good advice I'd say, 
for saving yourself occasions
 for regret. How can you regret 
becoming a larger person?
