Sunday Dinner: What’s New?

New growth emerges from D. ‘Autumn Brilliance’


“Life is a concept, like the “universe,”

that expands as soon as we reach

what we think is its edge.”


Kamand Kojouri


“In new surroundings, one grows new eyes.”


Marty Rubin


“Change is like the skin peeling off of a snake.

It is slow. It is sticky.

And sometimes you have to rub against a hard place

to pull yourself through it.

But in the end, you realize

that it was worth it all

to get the the new place

and new person you have become.”


Stella Payton


“Nature is not about preserving old things,

but about creating new ones.

New life. New ideas.”


Gemma Malley


“Accept that you are not finished,

and a new and better life

is just beginning.”


Bryant McGill


“And in the evening
After the fire and the light
One thing is certain: Nothing can hold back the light
Time is relentless
And as the past disappears
We’re on the verge of all things new”


Billy Joel

“When we love,

we always strive to become better than we are.

When we strive to become better than we are,

everything around us

becomes better too.”


Paulo Coelho
