Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn colors

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It's a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it's time to reflect on what's come before.

Look what you do, for that is what you are worth. Do what you should do, refuse to do what you shouldn’t do. And when it is not clear, wait until you are sure.

"Hope" is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops—at all: Emily Dickinson

Signs of Autumn:

Trees dancing in a brisk breeze,
Leaves scurrying across the ground.
Their colors range from green to yellow
and from gold to brown,
As more of them disengage from the trees
to fall to the land.
The nights get cooler, as do the days.

Ankur Brings Multicultural Show to the Stanley Milner Theatre

Artists are creators, visionaries, critics, and teachers and link us to our past and future. They query prejudices, break down barriers and challenge us to do the same. The art provides a safe place for citizens to engage in democratic dialogue.

Spectacular Alberta

Positioned between the Canadian Prairies and the soaring Rocky Mountains, the oil rich province of Alberta is perhaps the most spectacular part of Canada best known and favoured for its unspoilt scenery as it almost defies description!I love the rugged beauty of the Rocky Mountains!

The art of words...

Everyone has something special to share. Let’s bring words to life every day that brings us a great joy. Let’s speak /write from the core of what’s meaningful to us, find acceptance or rejection of our beliefs. Let’s experience the strength that comes from that acceptance or rejection.

Electronic information age is radically altering the way we learn, think, explore, and express

Learning is the indispensable investment required in this 'information age'.

Just as the Renaissance in Europe experienced a rebirth of knowledge, philosophy, science, and art through the printing press, the electronic information age is radically altering the way we learn, think, explore, and express our common human experiences-- and it is akin to a rebirth.

Every single one of us have something to offer

Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That's the opportunity an education can provide.

Work is a powerful force in shaping a person’s sense of identity. Meaningful work gives people the knowledge that they are making a difference in the world, increasing the wealth and welfare of the nation. Work is good only if it leads the worker to freedom, reward, recognition, and hope.

Each day is a new life, Seize it, Live it

Each day is a new life,
Seize it, live it.
With each sun rise
We start anew.
We are new, every day.
Each day is a new beginning.
New day, it's a new life!

Every man is enthusiastic at times. One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes; another man has it for 30 days. But it is the man who has it for 30 years or more makes a success in life. It is the characteristic of genius to hopeful and aspiring.

Wish you all a happy Teacher's day

September 05 is celebrated as teachers’ day in India:

Now more than ever, we live in reactive times. Retaliating is easy. But it is to the betterment of your success and health to step back, think about your responses, and respond in a beneficial way. People of self-control use wisdom-power, not reactive-power. Demonstrating self-control requires good emotional management.

Use failures as stepping stones...

If you personalize your failures in a big way, then you give those failures a big life. But if you treat your failures as part of the process necessary to achievement, then you give only a small life to them. A failure ...with a little life does not have as much control over your choices, future actions, and emotions.

Raise up a saddened and wounded soul

One word or a pleasing smile is often enough to raise up a saddened and wounded soul.

The marble Rama statue has a relaxing and pleasing smile on the face. Carved from white marble, the facial expression is clearly depicted through the careful choice of eye catching colors.

Surround yourself with encouragers! Be an encourager!!

Surround yourself with encouragers! Be an encourager!!

Life would be nearly impossible if we had to journey through it alone. We need to find strength in each other. “People will either increase you or decrease you. Surround yourself with increase people – people who love you, encourage you, help you and give you wisdom.”

Take an inventory of those who increase you. Value that support!

Observe the world from children's eyes and you will see the real, bright future

The mistake that adults make when looking at the future is that they see the future from their own eyes. That is why so many adults cannot see the changes that are coming. If they want to see how the world will be in 10 years, just watch a 15 year old boy or girl. Observe the world from their eyes and you will see the real, bright future.
