“A little bunny or some kind of ferret was probably there too, and bore witness as only rodents can.” ~ John Ashbery ________________ Their teeth and tails are dead giveaways.

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent's heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.” ~ Debra Ginsberg

When you reach the point that you are fighting your own fight, you are in harmony, and can put down the gloves. ______ “Rhythm is everything in boxing. Every move you make starts with your heart, and that’s in rhythm or you’re in trouble. Your rhythm should set the pace of the fight. If it does, then you penetrate your opponent’s rhythm. You make him fight your fight, and that’s what boxing is all about.” ~ Sugar Ray Robinson
