we must not think .....

i saw this page hanging on a classroom wall and love it .... i love the quote itself ... i love the simplicity of mother teresa's messages .. i am always drawn to her quotes .... but i also love that the whole presentation is a bit ragtag ... it wasn't about being perfect ... it was about getting those words out there .... it is typed, trying to be tidy or just so .... but then it's crookedy on the hand cut page ... and the pink highlighter looked to be at the end of its career .... and the red page was a bit wrinkled and battered ... like it had been moved to new spots over time ... restapled to new spots ... relocated to share the message to a different audience .... but, even over time, it kept doing its job ... spreading its light .... sharing the idea .... cause it is the idea that was important, not the outward appearance ...

Ah, spreading the light. Just stopped by to see what you had been up to lately. Spreading a little joy yourself aren't you? Love the blue pottery.
