For the Love of Owls

Hilary Bralove

“The owl,” he was saying, “is one of the most curious creatures. A bird that stays awake when the rest of the world sleeps. They can see in the dark. I find that so interesting, to be mired in reality when the rest of the world is dreaming. What does he see and what does he know that the rest of the world is missing?”
~ M.J. Rose

“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?” ~ Unknown

“Owl
Wiser than can be
Seeing great at night
Flying quieter over the sea
Making hope shine bright”

Box Freak

Woodbox-Designs – ArtFire.com

 

It’s been awhile since I admitted it, but I’m a box freak. An addict. I drool when I see a box I like. There CANNOT be too many in my life. EVER.  Any excuse will do. I can always find a ‘reason’ for another, or fun way to use one…

I HAVE made a promise to myself to simply ‘window shop’ now, rather than buying all the wonderful boxes I see, so we can still walk through the house without falling or getting buried.

 

“I thought boxes were the best toy. When my parents got a new car, I ran to my mother and said, ‘Did it come in a box?’ ~  Colin Angle

“Reorganization to me is shuffling boxes, moving boxes around. Transformation means that you’re really fundamentally changing the way the organization thinks, the way it responds, the way it leads. It’s a lot more than just playing with boxes.” ~  Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I’ve got a few missing.” ~ John Mayer
