Put on the day/And we'll talk in present tenses

I think this world is about to experience a renaissance of lovely. Of human touches. Of kindness. I believe it, and I believe it is being sparked by you and people like you.

I have had the fortune of having a lot of good feedback and comments this year, but the above one gave me goosebumps and made my lip quiver a bit because this is all I want.
A renaissance of lovely

Won't you join the movement?
Won't you go tell Rowena that you believe? I thank her so much for that comment- one that was such a lovely gift to me.

I also want to believe that we are headed for great change as we blaze right into 2009. I feel a vision quest forming for our country. I don't think it is always fair to think others will change things for us though. I have a ton of faith in Obama and the new administration, but I also think there is a lot that we need to shoulder ourselves- there is a lot of parenting and neighboring and loving and changing to do in each small life. There is a key that needs to be turned and we all need to hear the click before things are gonna really change. Small ripples and don't you ever forget that
The Mississippi's mighty,
but it starts in Minnesota
At a place that you could
walk across with five steps down
Are you ready?

A renaissance of lovely...wouldn't you like yr legacy to be that? Perfect.

Get me delivered to yr email xo

That would make a good book title. At the very least - it's a beautiful image to keep in mind.

Rowena said...

Oh mi goodness. Did I say that? I know I did, I remember writing it, but sometimes you need the lens of other peoples' reading before you understand what you yourself said.

I do believe what I said. And it goes for everybody out there who resonated with it.

Isn't that cool?

Not just a renaissance, but a revolution.

I think it is a great idea.
