Stop? Don’t Stop? (self-control essential!) Your choice! Should walls be white? Should walls be colored? How about both? Do you color on walls? Do you let your kids color on walls?? Please consider the consequences of Stop! or Don’t Stop!:)

May be, you only color in predetermined lines and spaces? May be, you color outside the lines? Are you color-blind? or wall-blind? or line-blind? or boundary-blind? Actually, boundaries do serve as protections!🙂

Compassion adapts to all those variables…blind to lines, blind to walls, blind to color…however… if compassion is required to see or color on the walls–it does! If it is required to keep the walls white–it does! (It becomes whatever it has to become to accomplish its purpose: unselfish love in action!)

Compassion transcends. (It’s not a rigid quality.) Compassion is a way of seeing or not seeing. Compassion is a way of living or not living. Compassion is flexible and unbreakable. Compassion gives the strength of steel.

It is lighter than cotton, yet ounce for ounce it is stronger than steel. For decades scientists have studied the silk produced by orb-weaving spiders. Dragline silk—the strongest of the seven silks these spiders can spin—has attracted the most attention. It is tougher and more waterproof than silkworm strands, which are commonly used in clothing.

Consider: The manufacture of industrial fibers such as Kevlar requires high temperatures and the use of organic solvents. In contrast, spiders produce silk at room temperature, using water as a solvent. Furthermore, dragline silk is tougher than Kevlar. If enlarged to the size of a football field, a web of dragline silk could stop a jumbo jet in flight!~excerpt Was it Designed-Spider silk

“It’s humbling to realize that a lot of very smart people are trying to replicate what the spiders in our basements can do naturally,” says biologist Cheryl Y. Hayashi, quoted in Chemical & Engineering News magazine.

(Since Spiders produce silk…ever think of a spider as compassionate?!-lol:) Oh, com’on never read Charlotte’s Web?!:)

“If I can fool a bug… I can surely fool a man. People are not as smart as bugs.”

“Why did you do all this for me?” he asked. “I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.’
You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.”

I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die. A spider’s life can’t help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone’s life can stand a little of that.”

“I’ve got a new friend, all right. But what a gamble friendship is! Charlotte is fierce, brutal, scheming, bloodthirsty—everything I don’t like. How can I learn to like her, even though she is pretty and, of course, clever?”

It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”― E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web

“The things seen are temporary…the things unseen everlasting!”

Talking, laughing, giving (compassion)…important “intangible” things…don’t stop!:) Are you a  giver of intangible things?…where you find compassion is where you find “true” friendship!


My writing is my controlled choreography…(of compassion?)


dance, a performance: a romance, a ballet of my mind, my words, my thoughts, my heart…


my thinking, my movement..however fast or slow, changing direction as emotion, logic, topic


dictate the rhythm and expression of my transparent brain music.


Maybe you like the tune, may be not?…may be you brain dance, may be not?…(may be i won’t publish this)…dancing


does takes courage…


like coloring on walls with compassion.


strive, have i “enough”…enough words, enough love to keep writing…just so you know, the performance is sincere and


not contrived… it’s not ballet that’s way too disciplined;


my dancing lacks technique and finesse…aspiring…inspiring?


is it lyrical, fluid and free?
