Words to Consider

  • Tikkun Olam (roughly translated, I understand, as Heal the World)
    “It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work, but neither are you at liberty to desist from it.” –Rabbi Tarfon.
  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

kai naconi

It only gets 'curiouser & curiouser' as Alice in Wonderland would have said. I'm talking about our similarities. But first things first! You & John had yourselves an adventure! (Is his mouth still feeling fine today?) And I'm glad you got your thread! Now the 'curious' parts, beginning with chocolate-covered candied ginger. OMG! I had to reread that to make SURE I wasn't seeing things. Tho' I am most allergic to chocolate, breaking out in miserable hives if I dare eat it, I WILL - once in a blue moon - give in and buy one piece of dark chocolate-covered candied ginger at Kegg's Candy across the street from Borders. I always take a Benadryl the INSTANT before I nibble it, and still get some hives. But it's just SO worth it. Next was ClothPaperStudio. I'm a member too, tho' lurking for a bit. Didn't know YOU were! Finally the shoes. I too, now order mine and have to buy wide, wide, tho' in MY case EEE. Mostly I wear SAS shoes. Very comfy. Our similarities tell me that we were definitely intended to be friends! By the way - expect that book very soon. Mailed it yeserday. And how are the kitty-people?
