If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,

of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.

LOVE LETTERS TO YOURSELF
This is taken from a love letter (a gentle reminder)
I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.
Life Changes. Circumstances change.
Sometimes you try to fit your old way
of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Fame is man-given; be thankful.
Conceit is self-given; be careful.
