getting prompted

After a couple of days of holiday merry-making (eating, drinking & lounging around), my brain is feeling a bit sleepy, so I'll continue using the previously-mentioned 'blog prompts' to churn out a new post.  Rest assured 2012 will see the return of new insights care of once-again-functional synapses and cognitive ability!  Hope everyone is enjoying reminiscing about 2011 & getting ready for a new year.

A Few Favorite Quotes:

The real challenge is not to survive.  Hell, anyone can do that.  It's to survive as yourself, undiminished.
- Elia Kazan

You are not dead yet,
it's not too late 
to open your depths by plunging into them
and drink in the life that reveals itself
quietly there.
- Rainer Maria Rilke

Creative work needs the whole sky to fly in,
and no eye watching it 
until it comes to that certainty which it aspires to
- Mary Oliver

...You step delicately into the wild world
and your real prize 
will be the frantic search.
Want everything.
If you break
break going out not in.
- Michael Ondaatje

...If you could only stop 
shimmering for just one moment,
you would see your own reflection
mirrored in the stars:
glittering serenely,
only occasionally exploding
while waiting for that promised dawn.
- Karen Hayes
