barking at the moon – I’ve been “barking at the moon” lately…to no avail other than soliciting concerned looks from family…
I try to remind myself of something I read recently – “Life is like rolling vistas..” I have always tried to pin moments…
“You will never reach your destination if you step and throw stones at every barking dog.” -Winston Churchill
May you have great dignity,
Sense how free you are;
Above all, may you be given the wonderful gift
Of meeting the eternal light that is within you
A blessing for Old Age.. John O’Donohue
