Hello again, you . . .

So my favorite girl is back in the studio, 
having leaped from her usual sphere to land upright on my desk where she can quite literally wave her flower at me as if wagging a finger.  She has, as usual, words of advice,  and probably hopes I will apply them liberally in all the places where my life feels like it is pinching a bit and needs to stretch . . .

All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.

-- Henry Miller

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure 
nor this thing nor that, 
but simply growth.  We are happy 
when we are growing.

-- William Butler Yeats

Love dies only when growth stops.

-- Pearl S. Buck

The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as we continue to live.

-- Mortimer Adler

Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on always being in motion just a bit, one way or another.

-- Norman Mailer

Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found.

-- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Thanks, friend. 
I have missed you, and I needed that.

Happy Thursday!

NICE WORK! Your new creations are so colorful familiar and strange at the same time. This one comes with some good quotes in a time when most growth is stifled.
