This word “Change” just bolted into my consciousness.  I wonder why?

A look around the world screams for change!  Don’t you think? A change against oppression, lies and hatred.  May these quotes stir up passion to make necessary changes wherever we are right now.

“Art, freedom and creativity will change faster than politics.”

–Victor Pinchuk

“Without change there is no innovation, creativity or incentive for improvement.  Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.” 

–William Pollard

“Raise your words, not your voice.  It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”


“It is not my work to control others.”

–A Well Being card

The question is, do we have the will to make good changes?

What do you think of these three interpretations of timelessness?

You must live in the present.  Launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. May your mind whirl joyful cartwheels of creativity.”  May your spirit soar throughout the vast cathedral of your being.”  —Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness; and knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.” –Khalil Gibran

“What has been , that will be done, what has been done, that will be done.  Nothing is new under the sun.”  –Ecclesiastes 1:9


Painting by Alphonse Mucha


Brenda Ueland has been a rock mentor encouraging me to write for these reasons:

“Why should we all use our creative power?  Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, bold and compassionate.”

There, I find the courage to share my convictions.  She goes on to say:

“Because the best way to know the truth and beauty is to try to express it.  And what is the purpose of existence here and yonder but to discover truth and beauty and express it, i.e., share it with others?”

Carl Sandburg calls Brenda’s book, “If You Want to Write” the best guide ever written on how to write – I continue to agree.

Who has best inspired you to write?
