not asking for any help
very carefully snipping tiny pieces
from the roll of sticky green tape
placing them on her fringed orange paper.
when she was happy with what she had created
her beautiful piece of art was done.
“great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

“jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty,
fall flat on your face, and then reach for the stars.”
“spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”

“if you fell down yesterday, stand up today.”
-h. g. wells
on a downtown detroit day
beautiful little gems
in so many
buoying our hopes
for a city
that has not given up
and is beginning
to thrive once again
in spite of
that once seemed
“there is no power for change greater
than a community discovering what it cares about.”
– margaret j. wheatley
‘Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, I’m going to snow.
If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes,that’s tough. I am going to snow anyway.’ – Maya Angelou
