If we cut a tree down, we see how the environment leaves it mark in each ring of the trunk. We can see how drought and disease stresses a tree. We don’t see this until we cut down the tree to look at the trunk. People carry their stories similarly. O...more

I don’t want to be an anti, against anybody. I simply want to be the builder of a great affirmation: the affirmation of God,who loves us and who wants to save us.Oscar A. Romero

“I don’t want to be an anti, against anybody. I simply want to be the builder of a great affirmation: the affirmation of God,who loves us and who wants to save us.”
Oscar A. Romero, The Violence of Love

Jimmy Santiago Baca
“I culled poetry from odors, sounds, faces, and ordinary events occurring around me. Breezes bulged me as if I were cloth; sounds nicked their marks on my nerves; objects made impressions on my sight as if in clay. There, in the soft language, life centered and ground itself in me and I was flowing with the grain of the universe. Language placed my life experiences in a new context, freeing me for the moment to become with air as air, with clouds as clouds, from which new associations arose to engage me in present life in a more purposeful way. ”
Jimmy Santiago Baca, A Place to Stand

“There are many things that can only be seen through eyes that have cried”
Oscar A. Romero

Edna O'Brien
“We all leave one another. We die, we change - it's mostly change - we outgrow our best friends; but even if I do leave you, I will have passed on to you something of myself; you will be a different person because of knowing me; it's inescapable...”
Edna O'Brien, Girl With Green Eyes

Steve Martin
“Were they beautiful? We were all beautiful. We were in our twenties.”
Steve Martin
