Big Dreams of Trains to Nowhere and Everywhere

My inspiration of the month….

With thanks to Craig who sent me the following link:

http://weburbanist.com/2009/10/29/all-aboard-clever-recycled-train-car-homes-offices-hotels/

It involves the clever reuse of train cars. Now what I find so inspiring about this … well in college my friends and I found a couple of old wooden cabooses…sitting on abandoned tracks a short walk from our dorms. […]

Small bit of fun

I was browsing Digg and ran across the following picture that someone took of some random street art in NYC.

I find it inspiring to find people who can be this creative, but equally refreshing that someone else can recognize it enough to want to photograph it.

On the subject of change

I’ve been contemplating change a bit recently – well okay – a lot.

“Change is BAD, I hate change – I’m not good with change, I don’t like change – BUT it IS important.” – Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson – The Closer – 3rd season premier – Episode – Homewrecker.

I rather agree with this quote […]

What is freedom?

I often hear people talk about our freedom…. and feel most strongly that fear and the need to “conform” in as many ways as possible eats at that very freedom.

I was reading a post by Lelia Thomas about freedom. And while the ideas are not new, they are well worth the re-telling. She writes […]

Freedom

Freedom lies in being bold.

— Robert Frost

This quote boldly lifted from another’s post about freedom. I’ve seen it before – and was reminded today that I wanted to add it to my personal quotes list.

Vision

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. –Jonathan Swift

I came across this quote again the other day…I’ve liked this one for a long time.

Mistakes or Experience?

Just trying to keep in mind:

“Mistakes are just the road to experience…. some roads are bumpier than others.”  — C. S. Hafer 1/8/2007

I’ve been experiencing lots of “mistakes” as I’m working on my WordPress theme… so I’m feeling like it’s a very bumpy road at the moment. And then I came across […]

Getting Stuck

“Shame and guilt are tricks of the Ego that keep you stuck in place”

Another quote that I jotted down without the complete reference I really need to be checking on these to give the proper credit.

This was said to one of the gals of “Starting Over” by a guest/minister in an episode ….

Fear

“Fear is paying attention to what could possibly go wrong more than your vision” – from “Starting Over”

“Fear is mis-directed attention” – Iyanla Vanzant

I had these jotted down as reminders – but I forgot where I picked them up… probably a book. I’ll have to look for the correct reference.

Ha! Found them again…apparently […]

finding time….

Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘ I don’t want to.’

~ Lao Tzu

I like to use this quote as the banner on the top of my “to do” list occasionally – usually when I’m feeling […]
