    Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.

    There are many ways to be strong, to stand tall with the solid strength of an oak tree, to be flexible and bend to the wind gale like a reed, or to flow with alternating rhythms of water like a stream or river, all of nature is within us to choose from to seed us with multiple layers of diversity, so much depends upon perspective layers of depth light as we journey into the story of our destinies.
    (Terence George Craddock September 2015 9.9.2015)

    Everything I think I own is simply borrowed: sustained to complete life's journey. Learn to take a little - give a little. Never expecting too much in return. Go with the current of the river: sometimes rough, other times clam. It's not always a smooth ride. Do things which create laughter and smiles. Once you know these rules there's NO anxieties or depression. ALL is well in my world.
    (Girls everywhere:)
