T.G.I.F.: Do not lose heart. We were made for these times.



  1. Brrr. Seagulls are so tough.


  2. Wow, DK, the tactility of that surface is to die for, and doing my best to maintain my sense of hope and optimism. Happy Friday!! 🙂

  3. Phew. Am I alone in wondering where David’s post was this morning? I’m new to the posts, but I am so used to drinking my coffee while seeing your photos, reading your quotes and musing over your musings, David. Thank you… I had almost lost heart! 🙂

  4. Maaaarvellous!
    Well worth reading Clarissa’s whole post, too. …I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is — we were made for these times.
    Aren’t we truly amazing, all of us, in our will and disposition to Simply Not Lose Heart in these dreary, taxing times?

  5. Love this stalwart bird! The photo and the words fit my psyche today…”there are millions of boats of righteous souls on the waters with you.” Clarissa always deepens and inspires us. Thank you!

  8. I absolutely love the work of Clarissa Pinkola Estés.
    ‘I too have felt despair many times in my life, but I do not keep a chair for it; I will not entertain it. It is not allowed to eat from my plate.’ This is a daily practice, that really works!! Thanks for sharing DK 🙂
