I am always trying to unite my two worlds. The one where I spend in places such as the Congo where my children friends sleep on lava rock for beds, awake to soldiers with guns hovering over them and are blessed by the crumbs falling their way by the rest of the world. In contrast I witness the luxury of love, laughter and passion. My helplessness restored by gestures of the love, the bride & groom fumbling for the words to say "I love you", the glorious moments of destination weddings, elegant brides,and those who enjoy the luxurious passion of life. Each world pulls me to it. I struggle to let go of the one I leave to enter the other. Always.
I grabbed this quote from poet, William Henry Channing off the blog of talented artist Angela Recada,
"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable,
and wealthy, not rich;
to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages,
with open heart;
to study hard;
to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently,
await occasions, hurry never;
in a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious,
grow up through the common
--this is my symphony.
~ William Henry Channing, 1810 - 1884
