From time to time I come across a saying, poem, song or story that seems to 'speak to me,' and when I do I like to set it down, somewhere safe, to bring up when the spirit moves me.  Since I began blogging I've found a perfect repository for thought-provoking dialog and / or wisdom.

  2. Good thoughts. Nice to see you settling into your new life.
