No really we planned this just for you!

There is a spirit that pervades everything, that is capable of powerful song and radiant movement, and that moves in and out of the mind. The colors of this spirit are multitudinous, a glowing, pulsing rainbow.

PAULA GUNN ALLEN

 That creates an image so brilliant, I may have to put on shades.

A little sumthin' sumthin' for you at the "C"

If you want to cure the world, don't emanate fear - emanate love.

 

Ram Dass

 

 

I have heard it said that hate is not the absence of love, fear is.  Hate is a desperate cry for love.  We often fear that which we do not know.  How about learning something new this week?  How about reaching out and learning about the person you see everyday, but never speak to? Someone new perhaps who isn’t like you, but different.  We need not fear our differences, but embrace them for what they are.   Neither of us are right or wrong, just different…and different is never something we should be afraid of.
