Once again, Wendy, has “nailed” it for me in terms of her mindfulness. The first quote has been wrapped around a recent discussion.
And the first daffodil is a harbinger of spring; we have our flocks of grackles “grackling” in the trees as ours.

“Respond; don’t react.

Listen; don’t talk.

Think; don’t assume.”


~ Raji Lukkoor



“Begin at once to live,

and count each day as a separate life.”


~ Seneca



“The way to live in the present is to remember that

‘This too shall pass.’

When you experience joy, remembering that

‘This too shall pass’

helps you savor the here and now.

‘This too shall pass’

Reminds you that grief, like joy, is only temporary.”


~ Joey Green
