BUTTERFLY IN BILAMBIL

The Mudgee Blockie

I am dust

as I sit and ponder

bereft of soul

for my soul is dancing in the wind with butterflies,

my soul is flashing silver backed gum leaves

in the sun

my soul is singing and sighing in river caves;

by Diane de St Hilaire Simmonds (c)

I look at victory as milestones on a very long highway.

– Joan Benoit Samuelson

Without darkness, we may never know how bright the stars shine. Without battles, we could not know what victory feels like. Without adversity, we may never appreciate the abundance in our lives. Be thankful, not only for the easy times, but for every experience that has made you who you are.”
― Julie-Anne

Pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.”

― Khalil Gibran Muhammad

Sea Shell by Amy Lowell
Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing me a song, O Please!
A song of ships, and sailor men,
And parrots, and tropical trees,
Of islands lost in the Spanish Main
Which no man ever may find again,
Of fishes and corals under the waves,
And seahorses stabled in great green caves.
Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing of the things you know so well.

 

Be Bold! Be Strong! Cling to thoughts of victory and deliverance. You are Victorious By Design!”

― Ann Marie Bryan

Proverbs 23:29-30 – Drinking causes woe, sorrow, fighting, babbling, wounds without cause and red eyes.

“I sit here
drunk now.
I am
a series of
small victories
and large defeats
and I am as
amazed
as any other
that
I have gotten
from there to
here
without committing murder
or being
murdered;
without
having ended up in the
madhouse.

as I drink alone
again tonight
my soul despite all the past
agony
thanks all the gods
who were not
there
for me
then.”
Charles Bukowski, The People Look Like Flowers at Last

Dammit, that yodel of triumph of yours was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard in my life.

Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

“I tried to utter, but could not. The tongue had got all tangled up with the uvula, and the brain seemed paralyzed. I was feeling the same stunned feeling which, I imagine, Chichester Clam must have felt as the door of the potting shed slammed and he heard Boko starting to yodel without — a nightmare sensation of being but a helpless pawn in the hands of Fate.”

― P.G. Wodehouse

Fear pounds on the door to our heart demanding to be let in. Joy is modest and often comes into our lives like a shy person entering a room; it can take a while to even notice it’s there. ― Jonathan Carroll

Let us do our duty in our shop or our kitchen, the market, the street, the office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the front rank of some great battle, and we knew that victory for mankind depended on our bravery, strength, and skill. When we do that, the humblest of us will be serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world.

Theodore Parker. 

He felt empty, broken, defeated.

Pamela Clare, Breaking Point

“Remember who you are. When you encounter things you think you can’t deal with, remember all the things you have dealt with before. Remember all your triumphs and all the times you overcame defeat. Remember who you are and use that strength to raise your head high, win or lose”

Gamal Hennessy

In my life, I’ve learned when to let shit go and when to fight. This, babe, what we got, I’ll fight for.

― Kristen Ashley, The Gamble

“Life is gamble, It’s harsh and painful most of the time, and it’s not for the timid. Spoils go to the victor, not to the one who doesn’t even show up for the battle."

Sherrilyn Kenyon, Night Play

You already possess everything necessary to become great. Crow

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but
for the heart to conquer it.”

Rabindranath Tagore, Collected Poems And Plays Of Rabindranath Tagore

Faithfulness and sincerity are the highest things. Confucius.

raleigh 077

Victory, union, faith, identity, time,
The indissoluble compacts, riches, mystery,
Eternal progress, the kosmos, and the modern reports.
This, then, is life;
Here is what has come to the surface after so many throes and
        convulsions.
How curious! how real!    

Walt Whitman

1819-1892
