Show and Tell {04.24.12}

I finally finished my first journal page (week 1) for Life Book.  Well, my second attempt for week 1.  Life Book is in week 17, so I am a bit behind.  That’s OK.  I’ll get there.  Here is a little collage of my page.

"Celebrating Our Goddess Superpowers"


Well Said

I love quotes.  I started keeping a journal of quotes in college and have continued to record quotes on scraps of paper and in journals.  I find that quotes can spark creativity or just prompt reflection.

The following are some of my favorite quotes.

“Life isn’t about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.”  George Bernard Shaw

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”  Lao Tzu

“Hope is the thing with feathers, That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all.”  Emily Dickinson, LXXXIX

“A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves – a special kind of double.”  Toni Morrison

“We never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace.”  Peggy Tabor Millin

“Kindness is the language in which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”  Mark Twain

I find Famous Quotes and Authors to be an excellent online resource for quotes.  I also gather quotes from books, magazines, TV/movies, and even Pinterest.

If you have a favorite quote, please share.
