A WEEK OF QUOTES - PART 1 - ONCE UPON A TIME...


"Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy.  The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated."

~Terry Tempest Williams~
"When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice."

  8. In the middle of dawn and dusk, we muddle through troubles but, yes, birds instinctively seem to know that the bookends of life should be about joyfulness.
