I presented today at a small symposium and used Dr. Seuss as one of leadership and research references. He had such a way with words. Tomorrow is another one.

I had the opportunity to hear some of John O”Donohue’s poems read by David Whyte who was a friend. It was wonderful and inspiritional. It seems everything O’Donohue wrote took the form of a blessing.

Many times encouragement blesses someone to walk into their season, conquer a fear, feel loved, move forward, get a job, smile. The possibilities are endless to what words of encouragement can do! 😀
Here are a wonderful image, a beautiful poem, and a Rumi quote to enjoy. There are words that speak only in silence.

These are incredible pictures. The photographer was patient to get all these wonderful and humourous photos. Fact is sometimes better than fiction. Without photoshopping, these images point to the innate curiousity and desire animals have for fun.

Squirrels are funny little critters that flit around trees like little brown flashes. Vadim Trunov, a Russian photographer, got pictures of some of these little rascals playing in the snow. And fighting – with winter around, those squirrels got into a quarrel over a pinecone, whose juicy seeds make for a tasty winter snack!
Vadim says that he simply left the cone on the ground and it eventually attracted a squirrel. And then, a challenger appeared! He was at ground zero of an epic squirrel duel and captured it all on camera. Needless to say, it is a very cute fight, as far as fights go.

Rules build boundaries. Sometimes we have to break the rules and find out what is outside those walls. It is always easy to play it safe, but so much more fun when we take risks and it works.

I was thinking about breaking the rules…specifically and in general, and this photo seems to fit the theme. If it was me (instead of the snowman), I would probably consider a couple of things before getting to the action. For example, not cutting the branch you are standing under. Or how safe it is to hold the saw barely with your fingertips. What about staying around after all the snow in the town is gone for good…also against the rules, isn’ t it?!
On the second thought…”If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun!” – Katharine Hepburn

Here is a wonderful poem. It reminded me of Judy Brown’s poem Fire. There are spaces between the logs where the fire finds additional fuel and adds to the different colours.

Quiet Flame: A Poem about Love. Photo: Umberto Salvagnin, CC BY 2.0, via Flickr.
This poem is inspired by a writing challenge called “Love in Ten Sentences.” Thank you to both Nicole at The Whispering Pen (check out her motivational posts!) and Sylvester at Syl65’s Blog (hello beautiful poems of faith!) for inviting me to participate in the event!
The challenge is to write a poem about love within ten sentences. Then, once complete, pass on the challenge to ten other bloggers. As I wrote my poem “Quiet Flame,” it was tricky to space out the idea I had with ten periods to the poem… but I did it! Here is the poem.
The fire was closer than
I realized, its flames licking my wounds of
Merriment in the rear window.
The glass broke when your hand reached for mine,
As your fingernails hid beneath my weighted palms.
