And this week's quote:

"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be." ~Abraham Maslow, American Psychologist

The examples given relate to the Arts, but the quote would apply to any walk of life. Some people seem to be born teachers. Many peole have a gift for comforting, as in nursing. Patience with children would make someone a great nanny. Someone who is a good listener becomes everyone's best friend.

You are what you are, and should make the most of your gifts and talents. I think Mr. Maslow is absolutely right. Follow the lead you are good at and your heart should find peace.

As for me I fall into the Jack of all category, master of none Big Grin
I'm content with that. I recall at seven years old my teacher said to my mother, "Jon has a butterfly mind", how right she was.

"a butterfly mind". I like that. Sounds very normal to me!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Having said that, I am at peace with myself though the state of the world bothers me. I simply don't understand why humankind pursues the idea that violence and war can solve disputes, they never have and never will.
Peace you say, how can we ever be at peace when our governments are so preoccupied with defence when defence in itself implies threat when the very existence of weapons implies a threat.

I just wish for a better world than this.

Thank you Jon, your words express my thoughts. We have no military here in Iceland. We fought for our independence with words.

Mary, thank you. I knew I had seen and read it before but for the life of me, couldn't remember what the article was called. It is a wonderful event, absolutely with only words, Magga.
