    Quotes, some of my own"Indigenous people are at one with the land, the sky, the animals and the air. I've got a lot of catching up to do..."

    "the rich man gave the beggar a dollar, but the penny didn't drop..."

    "I crawl out of the society of sand...to remain the man I am...."

    "No wonder my dad used a broom to sweep, to hide his footstep stencilled feet...."

    The last three are lines from my poems. The last one written after my father passed away....so I didnt follow him.

    hi white knight, I asked a tracker once what was the art to this mysterious talent. as you mentioned the absolute connectedness to your surroundings....All he said to me know what is meant to be there and what isn't, and what has changed. down to animals foot print and a broken branch or blade of grass. I do not possess these observations but understood what he meant.

    Thanks Citizen, you reminded me of one that applies to what I was thinking of a day or so ago:-

    Master Po: Vengeance is a water vessel with a hole. It carries nothing but the promise of emptiness.
    Grasshopper: Shall I then repay injury always with kindness?
    Master Po: Repay injury with justice and forgiveness. But kindness always with kindness.

    From Gandhi....

    "When I am in despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it...always.
