What kind of world do you want
Think anything
Let's start at the start
Build a masterpiece
Be careful what you wish for
History starts now....
                  "WORLD" - Five for Fighting

The story of your life starts now - it begins anew each day - every day - as long as you live.  How many of us have taken the time to think about what "masterpiece" we are building?  Is our foundation sturdy or built on flimsy wishful thinking?  Are we grateful for all we have, or do we always want more and/or something else? 

My masterpiece has many parts.  Family is a very important part of my masterpiece - each member has a room with a window to see the beauty of the world.  Each room also has a door that opens and shuts at the discretion of the inhabitant.  I know all too well that a shut door could simply mean that a person needs space.... after all, relationships of any kind need space to thrive...even plants do not grow well when crowded!  BUT - many times the "doors" are closed and stay closed for what seems like an eternity.  When communication breaks down, when judgement raises its nasty head, when we only see the bad and not the light and radiance in others, who would want to live in that house?  I wouldn't !

Communication and unconditional love are so difficult at times, but these two things are what I strive for nor matter "what" and even because of "what" -  My front door mat may say WELCOME,  but it is what happens inside- between people - because of people - for people - no matter who they are or what they do - no matter what they look like - no matter who they love - no matter whether they live here or are visitors - no matter "what" --

Families and houses take many forms -   My community,  my nation, and my planet also house me and are part of my family.  My masterpiece includes them all.

What kind of world do you want?  What do you stand for?  What are you willing to do and/or sacrifice  to make it work? 

Think anything - build a masterpiece - It is never too late......History starts now
