life as you know it has suddenly changed

sometimes no matter how much the sun shines, there’s still a light out.

i went out and in the dusk i stood patiently in the water’s edge – under the spell of bird songs and frog chorus, i finally found myself a wild fight on the end of  my tippet, the beauty of a summer evening’s dying light enclosed by towering cedars and pines. i finally felt myself come a little more alive again. and we must all realize yes, you will live to survive. you will eventually own your spark once more.

sometimes, something saves you.

“A fight is going on inside me”

wolf

“A fight is going on inside me.” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego. The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.  The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old chief simply replied, “The one you feed.”
