Rush forth with purpose

Or resolve to laugh more but make it count.

An Old Warrior - Patara Te Tuhi by Charles Goldie

Hold Dear

You share with me, those who came before and the ones that will follow, mortality’s fleeting legacy. Ah, but time marks no more than our imprint on the tapestry and on this fine work of art our mistakes are as valuable as our triumphs so don’t you be timid, or unwilling. Embrace this new year with the knowledge that age does wicked things to the body, but understand, it also bring urgency and wisdom. Have courage enough to leave bold mark on the canvas even if it is no more than your defeated blood, sweat and tears.

Never forget for a moment that we are all in it together.
My love, my care,


  1. Slightly off the point, but when I was very young, there used to be a very old, tattooed Maori lady on my school bus every morning - a very unusual sight in Surrey at the time!

  2. Long time, no talk:) I am behind in the blogging community as I have been too busy to be online. I hope all is well for you. I am trying to catch up on all my dear blogger buddies blogs. I am WAY behind.

    I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas. I wish you a Happy and Safe New Year.

  3. I'll take these words with me into 2011. Thanks for sharing them and have yourself a wonderful new year!

  4. stopping by to wish you a happy new year, Dearest Beautiful Simone! :))
