Day Ninety-Eight

Copyright 2010.  Baltimore Aquarium

*Some people spend their lives hoping for something to happen that will change everything.  They look for power or love, or the answers to their biggest questions.  I think really what they're looking for is another chance... some way to lead another life when all the mistakes they've made would be erased, and they could just start over.  Nothing bad has happened yet... and all their possibilities are still in front of them.*

Day Ninety-Seven

*Sometimes it seems like we're all living in some kind of prison, and the crime is how much we hate ourselves.  It's good to get really dressed up once in a while and admit the truth; that when you really look closely, people are so strange and so complicated that they're actually beautiful.  Possibly even me.*

Day Ninety-Six

Really awesome Mark Twain mural in Annapolis.  Photo copyright me... Artist unknown.

*Twent years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.*

Those who love chocolate...

Day Ninety-Three

*Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.  The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.  From now on you'll be traveling the road between who you think you are and who you can be.  The key is to allow yourself to make the journey.*

Day Ninety-Two

Copyright 2010.  Baltimore, MD.

*If you're feeling frightened about what comes next, don't be.  Embrace the uncertainty.  Allow it to lead you places.  Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness.  Don't waste time with regret.  Spin wildly into your next action.  Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes;  because you'll never get another one quite like it.  And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over.  Retrace  your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart... where your hope lives.  You'll find your way again.*

Day Ninety...

Copyright 2010.  Baltimore, MD.

*There's a ship out, on the ocean,
at the mercy of the sea.
It's been tossed about, lost and broken,
wandering aimlessly.
And God somehow you know that ship is me...

Cause there's a lighthouse in the harbor
shining faithfully.
Pouring its light out across the water
for this sinking soul to see,
that someone out there still believes in me...

*Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it.  But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of truth.*

*We on this continent should never forget
that men first crossed the Atlantic
not to find soil for their ploughs,
but to secure liberty for their souls.*

*And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.*
