Favorite Quote:
"We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are---
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. "


I sit lonely as a stone on a rushing river bank.
Melancholy about the path I was hesitant to take.
And in the first step to reconcile I'd assume it must be love,
because the heart without forgiveness would be a flightless dove.
But what I now see about the weathered rocks in this stream,
is they all look the same, and none of them like me.
And what I've come to realize about us stones on our journey to the sea,
is that the patient ones move faster and have a better chance.
And the quickly moving pebbles stay buried in the sand.
