veteran's heart

When an American says that he loves his country,
 he means not only that he loves the New England hills,
the prairies glistening in the sun,
the wide and rising plains,
the great mountains, and the sea. 
He means that he loves an inner air,
an inner light in which freedom lives
and in which a man can draw
the breath of self-respect. 
~Adlai Stevenson

...this is the reality

chasm of truth
“Esta es la realidad. Vivimos en un mundo en el que todos cometemos errores, incluso la chica ingenua que suele ser victima del temperamento y la falta de sensibilidad de un chico. Nadie es del todo inocente en este vida, nadie. Y aquellos que se creen perfectos son los peores.”~Anna Todd

ray darlin love

 ...the road has got me hypnotized
raydar love
and i'm speedin' into a new sunrise
when i get lonely and i'm not sure i've had enough
she sends her comfort comin' in from above
we don't need no letter at all
we've got a thing that's called radar love
we've got a light in the sky, radar love
no more speed, i'm almost there...
(Radar Love song lyrics: Golden Earring)

forever in my heart
a dragonfly

even though 
we are apart
your spirit 
is always 
with me forever 
in my heart

mystery of happiness

mystery of happiness
...happiness cannot be found when you seek it for yourself but when you gift it to others, generously and without conditions. it will find its way back to you.  the mystery in happiness is simple... it grows when it is shared! ~unknown
