"Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can."

I'd like to live in an igloo
Yes, I'd like to live in an igloo
I'd like to live in an igloo and
Fish from an icehole
I'd like to ride on a caravan
... I'd like to take a ride on a caravan
Yes, I'd like to ride on a caravan and
Sing with the gypsies
I'd like to live on a commune
Yes, I'd like to live on a commune
I'd like to live on a commune and
People can call me a hippie
I don't want to live in a palace
No, I don't want to live in no palace
Oh I don't want to live in no palace
There's too many empty rooms

We carved pumpkins tonight as a family......lots of fun....I hope you enjoy the pictures and enjoy the quote below.
“I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much; my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold onto it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude—for every single moment of my stupid, little life. "
- Quote from American Beauty
......one of my favorite movies!!!

“Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Where I'm From
By Macy Kuhar
I am from a family of five
From Organic food and tie-dye
I am from the brick house with a bright orange garage door and shutters
(Eccentric, unusual, but warmly comforting)
I'm from the cherry trees and tomato plants, and the swampy lake out back
(Us being the only ones to receive the swampy part)
From the yellow daffodils in the front yard
(Blooming bright in the spring)
I am from camping trips and bright blue eyes
From Mark and Michele
I'm from dance shoes and creative ideas
From "why fit in when you can stand out?"
And "what's meant to be will always find its way"
From a family who believes that love is their religion and the world is their church
A family that tells me there is a piece of god in everyone
I'm from Medina, Ohio, and Shorewood Drive
From Serbia and Germany, spaghetti dinners and ice cream cones
I am from grandparents who live six doors down
From my dog and two cats
From my little brother and big sister
I am from the pictures above the fireplace and the memory boxes in the closet
I'm from a family that's anything but ordinary

Marko learned how to make animals out of towels on our cruise. He is getting pretty good at it.
I hope you enjoy the words below!!!
May I see the things in front of me as they are, not as I think them to be. May I walk the steps ahead of me one at a time, not wondering if there's a map. May I say the things that fix things, not break them further apart. May I do what I need to do, not be distracted by what I can't. May I dream of what I hope for, not of what I fear.

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put thngs back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first workd you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.
