Quotes

"We have lost sight of the fact that we human beings are, in one respect, like small animals without even any fur or sharp teeth to protect us. What protects us is not our viciousness, but our humanity; our ability to love others and to accept the love that others want to offer us. It is not our toughness that keeps us warm at night, but our tenderness which makes others want to keep us warm."—Harold Lyon

With the crown of my head almost touching a lushly blooming lavender plant, I could feel the small breezes created by their wings. There were so many that I wondered if there were bees working anywhere else in the neighborhood. …Continue reading

Big Heart Dog Love

Puma and I were well known in our neighborhood as we went for walks twice daily. Through those daily walks I got to meet neighbors blocks away—handsome Puma’s gentle, friendly nature was a great conversational ice breaker.
