"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

James Taylor says it all........



let us turn our thoughts today
to Martin Luther King
and recognize that there are ties
between us all
men and women living on the earth
ties of hope and love
sister and brotherhood
that we are all bound together
in our desire to see the world become
a place in which our children
can grow free and strong
we are bound together
by the task that stands before us
and the road that lies ahead
we are bound and we are bound

there is a feeling
like the clenching of a fist
there is a hunger
in the center of the chest
there is a passage
through the darkness and the mist
and though the body sleeps
the heart will never rest
