a new year reminder

"Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy."
- Guillaume Apollinaire, 1880 - 1918, French poet, writer, and art critic.

life cracks me up. this quote,
the man who coined the term "surrealism,"
who wrote and thought alongside picasso, jean cocteau, marc chagall, henri rousseau,
was on a birthday card i got last week.

a reminder: keep an eye out for beauty in unlikely places this year.

Happy Birthday, sweet Rick! Your life has been inspirational to me. I remember meeting you and thinking, "sheesh, I wish I could love God like that..." (and now look!) :-)

Do you remember how Mother Theresa wouldn't pray for clarity, but instead prayed for faith? That was the first thing I ever heard you preach. I pray that this year will bring you the same faith you've helped others to achieve.

You rock.
