William Ward's Wise Words

William Arthur Ward wrote:

"Believe while others are doubting.
Plan while others are playing.
Decide while others are delaying.
Prepare while others are daydreaming.
Begin while others are procrastinating.
Work while others are wishing.
Save while others are wasting.
Listen while others are talking.
Smile while others are frowning.
Persist while others are quitting."

"Almost Lover" by A Fine Frenzy

I came across this song on Pandora and fell in love with A Fine Frenzy. The song's been out a few years now but I am now hearing - no judgment okay?! lol
Hope you enjoy; looking into more stuff by this group. Love their music!

P.S. I also discovered my dear friend, Galia Arad, on Pandora! So proud of her! Galia will be moving to Dublin in about a month and her farewell show is October 4th at The Living Room! See ya there! ;)

"Loving unconditionally..."

I read an excerpt from Russell Simmons book "Super Rich" which I love. In his book the quote is by the Maharishi, but when I googled they say it's by Emmett Fox. Anyway regardless of who wrote it, it's poignant:

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem ... It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world ...

Water Fountain - WTC memoriam
(Google image -

Today commemorates the 11th anniversary of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. It's a day I'm sure MOST remember: where they were on that day, how they felt when they first heard about the attacks; the shock, the fear, the disbelief as they watched the news with all the horrific scenes of that day.

My son had to interview someone about 9/11 for a discussion in school. He was able to interview a friend of mine, who worked in the first building of the World Trade Center AND was pregnant at the time. I've heard her story before but as I heard her again during the interview, I couldn't imagine how frightful it must have been for her and the thousands who were directly affected that day. To this day she still can still hear the BOOM of the first plane hitting the building she was in; she still wonders if the person whose body fell in front of her was someone's father, brother, uncle, friend; she remembers the searing heat in the building...and she is ever thankful that she and her babygirl (who is now a grown diva :) survived.

I pray for all who've lost loved ones on that day in the hopes that they have found healing in their hearts.
