new goals, new love, new light,

and new beginnings.”

“Letting there be room for not knowing

is the most important thing of all.

When there’s a big disappointment,

we don’t know if that’s the end of the story.

It may just be the beginning

of a great adventure. Life is like that.

We don’t know anything.

We call something bad; we call it good.

But really we just don’t know.”


Pema Chödrön




“The key to a better life

isn’t always a change of scenery.

Sometimes it simply requires opening your eyes.”


Richelle E. Goodrich

  1. Haha – that Arum is nothing if not persistent. People either love or hate that plant. I, for one, is in the camp that loves them. Those leaves are so wonderful!
