Quotes That Resonate

Press close, bare-bosomed Night!
Press close, magnetic, nourishing Night!
Night of south winds! Night of the large, few stars!
Still, nodding Night! Mad, naked, Summer Night!
~Walt Whitman

Life And Summertime

This week, start with this little Motivator that is a Kathy Original.
It's how I see the comparisons between life and summertime.

"Make the most of each warm day, just as we must make the most
of each day with our children.
Just like the days that seem so long,
our kids sweet childhood days are gone in an instant.

Enjoy the warm nights that make us want to wear very little.
Take that same sexy feeling while wearing so little,
and passionately kiss your spouse.

Feed your daily life the energy that summer fills you with. T
he energy that's made up of all your life's summers combined.
Infuse it into this very minute and see what happens.
I bet it will create and even more magnificent energy.
That, to me, is what makes summertime so special."

Is Home Ownership Really The American Dream?

Is home ownership really the American Dream? What about our freedoms to come and go, marry who we love, & worship as we wish?

I don't think you own a home, you own a house. Home is where you are with people who you love and love you back. Poobah is home, Thanksgiving is home, birthday parties are home. The house is simply where you gather.

Isn't this wonderfully appropriate for the July 4th holiday weekend? I think so!

“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom; justice; honor; duty; mercy; hope.” ― Winston Churchill
