This poem is my life's guide. I follow it daily and live by its direction. If you wish to find peace in your life, try incorporating this beautiful instruction manual into your day today. God bless.
 
Desiderata
by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
_If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself._

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

_You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here._
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

_Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul._
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be careful. Strive to be happy.

Winter, don't go.
Via +nomad dimitri
 
Enough!  I have to run away from here

For winter is ending soon and the snows are already starting to melt in the Alps.  So despite being thin as a rail, I have to move northwards if I want to catch some of the last real snow.  In any case, I feel mended: the lavender fields have done their magic and the thick meat stews may have garnered me a couple of kilos.

Sure, there will be snowstorms through March and, even, into April.  But it is not the same thing as snowshoeing through forests piled with heavy snow established for months.

So, today, I am prying myself out of the monastery, packing snug duck-feather parkas into crammed suitcases and retracing the river back up to the high alpine ranges. 

Meanwhile, the air smells of spring, the wet southerlies are blowing, hyacinths are smiling. Please!  I am not ready for so much spring yet!   Too noisy.  I need another month of cottony white quiet.

As people celebrate the end of winter, I find myself, once again, a minority.  Is anyone here with me?

Story
Tagline
writer, culinarian, artist, attorney, and daughter of God on the beautiful adventure that is life.
Introduction
First I became a writer, then I learned to cook and made my way through kitchens across the country for a dozen years. Afterward I studied law.  In kitchens, I cooked everything from cheese-steak to classical French cuisine, and ran a few venues.  As a lawyer I defended product manufacturers and construction companies, arguing my way through courtrooms up and down Florida. I like painting, reading, tent-camping, and just about anything that includes getting to spend time with my dogs. Thanks for adding me to your circles. See you around G+.
