Have you bought a quotable card lately? You know, the one when it first came to the marketplace had a white background and bold black letters. They seemed to have been a hit from the start.
Do you like this one?
“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”
Are you happy with the number that came to mind?
What about this:
as though no one is watching you.
as though you have never been hurt before.
as though no one can hear you.
as though heaven is on earth. – Souza
They’re reminders, too, and when hung where it catches our eye they do just that
Because every so often we need reminders –
to make time to dance, move wildly, shake like the Kalahari Bushmen
to open our heart and let love enter. Still one of the walking wounded? A closed heart hurts much more in the long run.
to give it our all and sing that song – a little louder; no one’s listening.
to live before. . . .
