Eleanor Roosevelt

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

I taste a liquor never brewed

15 01 2013

I taste a liquor never brewed,
From tankards scooped in pearl;
Not all the vats upon the Rhine
Yield such an alcohol!

Inebriate of air am I,
And debauchee of dew,
Reeling, through endless summer days,
From inns of molten blue.

When landlords turn the drunken bee
Out of the foxglove’s door,
When butterflies renounce their drams,
I shall but drink the more!

Till seraphs swing their snowy hats,
And saints to windows run,
To see the little tippler
Leaning against the sun!

~Emily Dickinson

“If dreams were easy, they wouldn’t call them dreams.

They’d call them naps”

Two words: Kinfolk Magazine

It is a glorious drop of wonderment; One I can hold in my hands. Graze a finger across an image on the page. Oh! What a lovely page! Heavy paper that is covered with beautiful words and lovely pictures. It even has a scent. Stories of life and shared meals. Images of textures and faces. I want to highlight favorite passages, but, I’m afraid to tarnish the page.

It inspires me to take pictures.
