I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

-Joyce Kilmer

Equal hours of light and darkness
we celebrate the balance of Mabon,
and ask the gods to bless us.
For all that is bad, there is good.
For that which is despair, there is hope.
For the moments of pain, there are moments of love.
For all that falls, there is the chance to rise again.
May we find balance in our lives
as we find it in our hearts.

The perfect way to start the day is to ground and center.

The death of a family member brings out the worst in some people.

If Hillary was vilified for having voted for the war, how can progressives allow Obama to ramp up a war in Afghanistan?

I've finally decided to get rid of MSM. I am putting up an antenna so that I can get local news, but MSNBC and CNN will never grace my TV screen again. Oh, and it helps that I have XM radio so that I can listen to the Yankee games.

Why are people so self-centered?

What Joseph at Cannonfire has posted.

Everyone should spend time in the woods, listening to nature.

The smell of Pine clears the head and stimulates the mind. So, why do campers start those stinky campfires?

If you mix a drop each of Cypress, Spruce and Geranium essential oils with some Sweet Almond oil, you will have a heavenly scent.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
