Happiness is not having what you want. It is appreciating what you have.

“Why I Wake Early

Hello, sun in my face.

Hello, you who made the morning

and spread it over the fields

and into the faces of the tulips

and the nodding morning glories,

and into the windows of, even, the

miserable and the crotchety –



best preacher that ever was,

dear star, that just happens

to be where you are in the universe

to keep us from ever-darkness,

to ease us with warm touching,

to hold us in the great hands of light –

good morning, good morning, good morning.



Watch, now, how I start the day

in happiness, in kindness.”

― Mary Oliver

A little inspiration from Wayne Dyer.....

Daily Inspiration | January 17, 2020

"Look upon every experience you’ve ever had, and everyone who’s ever played any role in your life, as having been sent to you for your benefit.

In this universe, which was created by a divine, organizing intelligence, there are simply no accidents
. "

Daisy, that is one of my Robert Frost favourites! I can feel the quietude and beauty where he walks.

Beautiful cries of warbling perception
Mixed into overpowering swells that rise and fall
Slick concoctions of toasted spice and bubbling laughter.

Every emotion in every thought, every flavor of nostalgia
Experience, human, animal, mineral, celestial
Spiraling into ideas, shapes, motion, people, places, civilization, towering faces
The words of them all fly, glide, and sink about my mind
A radio tuned to ethereal frequencies that likes its static and adventures.

I have no need to control any of you, beyond what I find in my own mind
Just let me dance and whirl on your surfaces
Finding my peace as I walk on water
Home being the pond where you first found me.

~therioshamanism - amber bell

I love the out doorsy-ness (is that a word?) of his poems. He is often walking in woods or through towns after sundown and his words are so wonderful that I wish I was walking with him.
