Quote of the day…

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

Henry David Thoreau

Leave Love Alone – Inkling Sketch by Jason J Nicholas

“Leave Love Alone” inkling sketch by Jason J Nicholas .

Autumn is a great time of year to fall in love.  You can’t force love to happen.

Sometimes, you have to leave love alone and let your soul take over to see the magic burst into colors.

This inkling sketch is inspired by Mother Nature and how she paints the world around us with spectacular colors.


Where’s Walden?

So, do you ever think we’ve got it wrong? I mean, really wrong?

Putting the 9-5 before our family.

Allowing the pesky little things to become the large things by nagging at our heels.

Allowing fleeting moments to … well…be … fleeting moments and not savoring them.

Worrying about being perfect for others rather than celebrating our own identities.

Keeping up with the Joneses even when the Joneses can’t even keep up with themselves.

Unconsciously responding to the technological pinging of our gadgets.

Marching to the beat of the loudest drummer rather than the one that most resonates with you deep inside.

Being trampled upon by the stampede of people who were camped outside
the big box store for days replacing the heartfelt intrinsic
sentimental value of a crocheted scarf.

I am Jason.

This is not my Walden.

Hear me roar! (I think there’s an app for that).
