What we learn is that beauty and imperfection go together wonderfully. ~Matthew Fox You may not believe this, but some days it’s really hard being me.

The Still, Quiet of the Day

The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind. ~Albert Einstein I am quiet, in real life, honestly, I am. Very quiet and shy, almost awkwardly bookish.

Exhaling to Wait

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau As we age I used to think we learn patience and understanding.
