Who We Are
We are so different in our moods, our styles, our personalities.
Some like to push while others plod, some like to talk, some sing all day.
While others keep thoughts to themselves, each of us has our separate strengths.
Our limits, fears, and untold dreams, each of us shows our special skills.
Each learns from what the others know, we are so different, yet alike.
We are a part of all mankind, our striving brings life harmony.
It is wondering what in the world we are here for... and finding the answer in a smile or a sunny day.
Learning I can be dirty and wet, and live through it.
Living in the present, neither remembering too much of the past nor dreading or fantasizing about the future.
Feeling at home outdoors.
I learned by failure as much as by success, the neeed for doing the small, seemingly unimportant jobs.
This was the first opportunity for many of us to work and associate in an environment of quality - not only of rights but of responsibilities.
Putting your life in someone else's hands is an experience that more people should have.
Once you have looked fear in the face and have overcome it, you can do it again and again and again.
Life wasn't governed by the clock and my mind and body self rejoiced at sensing the more steady and reassuring pulse of nature.
I feel that I've become a part of the land and the land a part of me.
