“Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart, but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes.” – Mark Amend

Today

Posted in Thoughts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2012 by allisonlabine

Be happy for every moment you are alive, for every moment you are well, for every moment you are free. For in every corner of the world, there is suffering.

Today marks the start of the Namibian seal slaughter – 85,000 pups killed over the next 3 months for their fur. Maybe next year things will change. Thank you to those who tried, who always try to do what is right, especially against great odds.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar…”
– Lord Byron

The sound of sunrise

I walked with my memories of this beach…of Long Island.

And the sound of sunrise…the sound of peace and life. The sound of awakening.
