On love …

The Night has a thousand eyes,
And the Day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.

– Francis William Bourdillon

On listening …

When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know.
When you listen, you may learn something new

Warrior and the storm

Came across a quote today, that resonated with me.

Fate whispers to the warrior
"You cannot withstand the storm."
The warrior whispers back
"I am the storm"

Black socks

A camp song that I learned this fall.

Black socks, they never get dirty.
The more that you wear them, the blacker they get.


Sometimes, I think I should wash them.
But something inside me says, don't wash them yet.


Parents, the always keep talking.
The more you ignore them, the louder they get


Sometimes, I think I should listen.
But something inside me says don't listen yet.
