These pictures are AWESOME. But i notice that they are hosted on the site of the ppl that make this sauce. If that's true, and they re-organize their website or go out of business, won't these images go away? Is there a way we can copy them to this site?

A Power Greater than ourselves

Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

One small step is not just

One small step is not just much more than nothing, it is infinitely   more. (Clement)

And the task that seems infinite is finite, even if it seems big.


Help me find the courage   and    faith   to   start and to  keep going.

From: Mary Oliver's poem   The summer Day

I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

The day is a gift. My

The day is a gift.

My attention is a gift.

I can choose where to focus it.

'Asking "What's the next action?" undermines the victim mentality. It presupposes that there is a possibility of change, and that there is something you can do to make it happen.'
