The Arrow and the Song - Longfellow
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;

And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and (will) be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is; nor how valuable it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a strange, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
Martha Grahm to Agnes DeMille

I hear a voice you cannot hear,
which says I must not stay;
I see a hand you cannot see,
which beckons me away.

    Thanks Carla, That was a beautiful pix.  Here is the latest on 2 of my cancer babies.  First: Brandi, who will be 15 in Dec. isn't doing too good.  Not eating but I think she really wants to but I assume that nothing smells good to her at this stage.  She will sniff it and walk away.

    Second:  Maggie, she is my foster that will live out her days with me.  She has bladder cancer and has been doing great.  It has shrunk down to nothing but it doesn't mean she is cured.  It is just in remission.  She will be going to her cancer vet next week so we will see if she still is doing great.  I do know that her arthritis isn't getting any better even with the meds.

    Please keep her in your prayers and thoughts as well as Brandi.

    Good thoughts go with you,
    Jo, Brandi, Sis, Maggie and Callie

    Hi  I hope both your babies are feeling better and get to live as long as possible under your care.  I took care of our beagle, Katy, for several years before she passed away from heart failure.  Towards the end, she didn't want to come back into the house.  I think instinct made her want to go off on her own to pass away.  I would carry her back into the house and place her in her bed where I heard her take her last breath one morning.  Broke my heart. 

    Take care & give them both a little hug from me.

    Hi  Don't worry about checking in often.  I just like to leave everyone a little note every so often just to say "hi".  I know everyone is probably as busy as I am.  I don't get to check in as often as I used to and I'm still recovering from my let injuries from last year. 
    Hope all is going well for you, also.
