This is a compilation of thoughts and quotes that I have found or written recently, as well as many that I've collected throughout the years. Most thoughts are posted randomly, as I feel inspired. A listing of quotes can be found alphabetically (check the 2008 and 2009 archives listing), or by source.

The Garden

A friend sent this to me recently from the archives.

Something I wrote while a Junior in High School.

The long leaves
of the tropical trees,
Reach down on touch the path
that nobody sees.

Rare and beautiful fruits
are growing with pride
And brilliant wild flowers
who have nothing to hide.

A crack of dawn reaches down
and sparkles on water clear,
In a small bright pool
formed by a stream passing near.

Soft green fern
and multi-colored plants
Are found sitting next to
mushrooms that dance.

A beautiful garden
that waits to be seen
While it holds a feeling
of being safe and serene.
