Q & A

The questions we ask make the answers we get.

So, we must pay attention and listen first.

Being ruled by the numbers, misses ourselves.

Calculated assessment is meaningless


Rain measured in volume and duration

makes life an endless series of droughts and floods.

Soaked by the rain and absorbing its wetness,

be filled with life as we share being blessed.


Work reckoned by earnings, hours, and title

makes life a servile drudgery without joy.

Humpday and Friday are opportunities

to enhance the community with our presence.


Trees judged by height and girth of branches and trunk

makes life a process of selfish timbering.

Following their lead, embrace the breath of God,

thereby know from whence we came and where we go.


Home compared in square foot and number of rooms

makes life futile competition with next door.

Homemade completes all for one and one for all.

Simple harmony treasures love of neighbor.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
