A Part of Nature, A Part of Ourselves
To see a part of nature
To understand a part of nature
To love a part of nature
To share a part of nature
To help a part of nature

Special Note - I am honored and proud to announce that this poem has reached
around the globe. As of May 9, 2006 my poem has gone in to print on
product boxes produced by Business Zone Ltd., located in Taiwan. When I
receive some of the boxes I will post a photograph of the final product.
September 9, 2006 - The boxes with my poem on them arrived this morning!
Thanks for all the positive comments about this poem,
This is the best photo I could manage.
The box is much brighter and vivid in color than this photo depicts.
Here's a close-up of the actual poem on the box.
When your spirit is blue
When the day drags you down
When your out of breath
For far or near
Come one, come all
Look high to the sky
See the Soaring Eagle on the go

Loss Of Mother Poem
Now that I am gone,
remember me with smiles and laughter.
And if you need to cry,
cry with your brother or sister who walks in grief beside you.
And when you need me,
put your arms around anyone and give to them what you need to give to me.
There are so many who need so much.
I want to leave you something -- something much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your heart as well as in your mind.
You can love me most by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
by embracing them and living in their love.
Love does not die, people do.
So, when all that's left of me is love, give me away as best you can.

movie "Akeelah and the Bee"
Our Deepest Fear
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do.
We were born to make a manifest of the glory of God that's within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson
