I'm just beginning Where the Heart Beats, as I spend some time digesting these two quotes.
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of the arts." Henry David Thoreau
"I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones." John Cage
May you affect the quality of this day as you let go of the old and beckon the new.
