Creative art that inspires, words of wisdom and whimsy, woe and laughter that make life a soul-stirring experience. Also sometimes just madness, well all the best people must have some of that you know.

    Reading Room of the old Detroit Public Library

    «The crown jewel of the original Detroit Public Library was the extravagant Reading Room: a show-stopping, five-story, skylight-topped sanctuary. The room was bedecked with iron columns and ornate walkways, which librarians traversed to retrieve books for patrons. When the library opened in 1877, it was one of the most magnificent spaces Detroiters had ever seen. In the post-Victorian age, it was deemed too old-fashioned, and was demolished in 1931. »

    Doing what is just or kind because you feel its the right thing to do, not to get anything in return, or to avoid punishment is the measure of our character in many ways. Its easy to do these things when others are watching or there is a ‘reward’, but to show compassion and empathy for the sake of it in and of itself, just to help another, is a beautiful thing indeed. ♥ xo

    Perspective

    How others treat you, what they say or do or think, is a reflection of them, their perspective on life, their character, the part of their journey they are in at that time.

    It doesn’t actually show anything about you at all.

    Only what you do, you’re intentions, how you choose to be and react can reflect who you are. Don’t let others behaviour define who you are!

    Give yourself the power over that, in the end its your life, your journey, your heart!

    After talk of political activism, ecocriticism, influential women and the power for change I am resigned to go deal with our pile of dishes. Oh dishes that never seem to end, you would interrupt wouldn’t you! I shall clean them, but it shall be while deep in thought and listening to inspirational music, Lux Aeterna, you shall be my muse for cleaning epic-syle! Behold the cleaning that shall befall thee dishes!
