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.

believe them.

 Compassion, ethics, science, and nature.
Live, love, laugh, play, rejoice, celebrate.
Explore, discover, question, dare, understand, wonder, reflect.
Create, care, conserve, nurture. Share, help, hug, heal, inspire.

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.

"I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life." Eleanor Roosevelt

    There's only one alternative to growing older.  I'm going to kick up my heels as long as I can.  :-)

    We're not getting older.  We're getting better, as the saying goes.   Thumbsup
