. . . but hopefully not 3 aeons . . .
I have been nominated by my loving friend, Pauline, The Contented Crafter, which is a good thing, as now I will post ‘something’ at least. I’ve been rather busy with one thing and another lately and most lax about posting and responding to comments. Again, my apologies. And to quote a poster my Mum had up for some time: “if it’s not one thing, it’s your Mother!” Anyway . . .
I don’t know how regular these will be; we have the Celebration of Life for my Aunty this coming Saturday and family members are coming from all over, which is nice, but means I likely won’t see the computer much for a wee bit. When the dust settles . . .
My first quote is from a woman who has inspired me for many years. In the spirit of Gandhi, she owned only the clothes on her back, a notebook and pencil. No money. She walked across the USA at least eight times and if you added the partial trips, some say up to thirty times or more. She was flown to Hawai’i and Alaska so she could walk there, too. In 1952 she changed her name to ‘Peace Pilgrim’ and began walking for Peace. She did this until she died nearly thirty years later. She vowed to walk until offered shelter and to fast until offered food and she kept those vows. Her words and writings are available free, thanks to a group of her friends/followers who keep them published. Donations are not necessary, but are accepted with thanks if anyone is moved to help with that mission.
One of my favourite quotes from her work is:
Many of you, no doubt all of you, have your daily life challenges. In the midst of all that, I wish you Peace as it is defined here.
More to come and thank you, Pauline (I think 🙂 No, seriously, thank you!). ~ Linne
And my favourite Peace song: Let There Be Peace On Earth, and Let It Begin With Me
