Wearing for each lost leaf a flake of snow.
-Richard Wilton (1827-1902)

Daily Good: Abused Wolves and Troubled Teens Find Solace in Each Other
“A strong gust of wind is answered by a chorus of wolf howls in Southern California’s high desert. Wearing hoodies and well-worn sneakers, city kids make their way up a mountain. Navigating the high desert terrain can be a challenge for some, and a few lag behind. Leading the way is a wolf named Malo.

Where myth and reality meet
We all grew up hearing stories based on myths. Thanks to these tales — and the books, artwork, movies and cartoons they inspired — most of us have developed images of these mythical places in our minds.

PURPOSE BRINGS JOY
“Our purpose is hidden in our joy, our inspiration, our excitement. As we act on what shows up in our life our purpose shows up.”
— James King
For many of us, our joy is truly activated when we get a bigger picture of who we are and why we are here.
Most of us need to enlarge our self-concept. We may see ourselves as a bag of bones but, in truth, we are eternal, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s time to think of ourselves as much larger and granderthan just a physical and emotional being confined in a body.
“There is no more important step you can take than to define your life’s purpose. It develops your sense of belonging to our universe.”
— Arnold Patent
A Note from the Universe
Quickie Happiness Workshop for Increasing Profits at Times of Seeming Peril:
Think as much, if not more, about growing your income as you do of trimming your expenses.
And for extra credit focus on customers more than vendors; smiles more than frowns; possibilities more than risks; options more than commitments; vacations more than overtime; detours more than setbacks; opportunities more than obstacles; and Goldilocks more than the bears.

“Wise men hear and see
As little children do.”
-Lao-Tzu (6th cent. B.C.)
Children see things with an open mind and an open heart. Wisdom is not being childish, but rather it is being child-like in our curiosity and wonder. It allowing possibilities to present themselves in front of us. It is marveling at the grandeur of life.
