“Once you have flown, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return.” ~Leonardo da Vinci

“We see from where we stand.”  “Beyond the mountains, more mountains.” “A monkey never thinks her baby’s ugly.” “After the dance, the drums are always heavy.” “Hello is your passport.” “A donkey always acts like a donkey.” “Very close is not home yet.” “A starving dog does not lie down.”

In this high place it is as simple as this, leave everything you know behind. Step toward the cold surface, say the old prayer of rough love and open both arms.  Those who come with empty hands will stare into the lake astonished there, in the cold light reflecting pure snow the true shape of your own face. ~David Whyte

“This is my simple religion, There is no need for temples No need for complicated philosophies, My brain and my heart are my temples, My philosophy is kindness.” ~ Dalai Lama
