I am a collector of words

Words feed me, free me, comfort, uplift and heal me. I've been saving my favorites in books, handwritten over the years and thought that perhaps in sharing them, not only am I preserving them for myself, but perhaps others may also find healing in them as I have.

"The original meaning of the Muslim word "jihad" is to face one's own demons.  This is the holy war.  Without the ability to face our own demons, we often seek revenge rather than feel what is ours to feel.  For vengeance is a powerful distraction from accepting the legitimate suffering that arises from the wheel of life; an acceptance that can make kindred spirits us all, if we let it."  Mark Nepo
