Slamet Hendry


“When we think of legacies, we often think of some major act, or series of acts, that affect people on a large scale. But ... by investing in one person, by sharing our knowledge, or something as simple as a book, we may set in motion a series of events that will leave a legacy long after we are gone.”

~ Joe Byerly, “From the Green Notebook”, The Sunday Email


Not in spite of but because of

“What I'm thinking about now aren't all the ways I can try to hang on to my youth or all the seconds ticking by in some kind of morbid countdown to death, but rather how I keep becoming someone I always hoped I could be.

If I'm lucky one day a very old face will look back at me from the mirror, a face I once shied away from. I will love that old woman ferociously, because she has finally figured out how to live a life of purpose—not in spite of but because of all her mistakes and failures.”

~ Jann Arden, “If I Knew Then”

Good morning

I woke them up while taking this image and they scurried off. After I stepped away, they went back to the huddle and fell asleep again. Zzz
