The Woman She Was - Rosa Jordan

"'I never worried too much about being a good mother, or a good wife or a good nurse or a good revolutionary. But I have tried to be a good person.'...I asked how I could be a good person too. She said 'Think hard about what matters most to you. When you think you know what it is, do it. Or defend it. Be strong. Don't let other people decide for you'"

Celia Cantu's mother, seeking advice from Celia Sanchez , the Flower of the Cuban Revolution and an integral member of the 26th of July Movement. pg 84

The world's greatest lie:
"It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie" - pg 20

Horseshoe Island Park - Halifax

You had better live your best and act your best and think your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the other tomorrows that follow.

“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are. There cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time." -- Nicholas Sparks

Sometimes, surrender to yourself.

Cherry St.

Along the path of life there are little interruptions. They may be viewed as that, or they can be reminders of how lucky we are that we are there at that moment to LIVE along the way.
