“Earth provides enough to 
satisfy every man's needs, 
but not every man's greed.” 
       Mahatma Gandhi

Farms, Novato Creek, Water Birds. We all want to be in the carriage

“Don't think of yourself 
as a surrogate mule, 
think of yourself as an 
entrepreneur of the physical.” 
          George Saunders

“Shoving feathers up your butt 
does not make you a chicken.” 
        Brad Pitt

'Do I look as cute & fluffy as you?"
“This is what a place like 
this does to you. It
 makes you put words
 in the beaks of chickens.” 
                  Danielle Paige

“It was incomprehensible to 
Ricky that anyone could find 
Milburn boring: if you watched 
it closely for seventy years, 
you saw the century at work.” 
            Peter Straub

And so with Novato. One feels part
of the history of such a place.
From the first inhabitants,
to the Spanish, Sir Francis Drake,
all the Pioneers, Founders, 
Farmers, Road & Bridge Builders. 
They built a town.

This Way

A  L  O  H  A !
"I expect to pass through 

this world but once; 

any good thing therefore 
that I can do, or any 
kindness that I can show to 
any fellow creature,

let me do it now; 

let me not defer 

or neglect it, for 

I shall not pass 

this way again."

"Our world grows smaller, but 
it grows dearer and greater. 
Simple things have a 
new charm for us, and we 
suddenly realize that we 
have been renouncing 
all that is greatest
 and best, in our pursuit 
of some phantom.” 
     William George Jordan

such a luxury sometimes.”

Nature Hearts

A  L  O  H  A !
"I arise today
Through the 
Strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire.
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock. "
         Saint Patrick

"Go out, go out 
I beg of you     
And taste the beauty 
of the wild.     
Behold the miracle 
of the earth     
With all the wonder 
of a child. "
      Edna Jaques

Street Chalk - San Rafael

"Nature is 
man's teacher.     
She unfolds her 
treasure to his search,    
unseals his eye, 
illumes his mind,     
and purifies his heart;      
an influence breathes 
from all the sights and 
sounds of her existence."

Summer Sighs

A  L  O  H  A !
Calmness is a superpower. 
The ability to not overreact 
or take things personally 
keeps your mind clear 
and your heart at peace.

 "Tears of joy are like 
the summer rain drops 
pierced by sunbeams."
            Hosea Ballou

"Petting, scratching, and 
cuddling a dog could be 
as soothing to the mind and 
heart as deep meditation and 
almost as good for the soul 
as prayer."
