Favorite Quote:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference -Robert Frost
"Be the change you wish to see in this world"-Gandhi
"Love the art in yourself rather than yourself in the art"Constantin Stanislavsky.

Trust is the thing with balloons
It can expand when air is put in to fill the space 
It can be filled with water as well
It can be filled with sand giving substance 

And it can stay within by being grounded
And it can travel along and float in the sky
And it can stay on someone and follow them  
And it can catch onto a tree or fence

Then it deflates
Then it falls 
Then it no longer 
Lives except in a childs frown 
And it can it be replaced?

"Hope" is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson inspired me to write this.
