Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown)

why write?

Because of this very reason:
"We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it." - Anais Nin

I saw the first phrase of this quote on the cover of a Journal today. I loved it this morning and finally just looked up the full reference.

I needed to read, hear, touch and breathe these words today. How about you?
