Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse. ” ― Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny  The Truth of Experience It was about 20 plus years ago that I came to the realization that you cannot appreciate love if you do not experience hate.

Cesare Pavese I was on the treadmill this morning watching part of a movie doing my 3 miles.  This quote was in the movie and it stuck with me. There are some days I remember, but truly only because of moments in that day.  I remember vivid moments of securing my first job at age 16.  I saw an ad in the Sunday Dallas Morning News by Neiman Marcus hiring an artist's model.
