I Know What Wealth Is

I Know What Wealth Is

I know what wealth is

“These things I know: I have planted a garden, so I know what faith is.  I have seen birch trees swaying in the breeze, so I know what grace is.  I have listened to birds caroling, so I know what music is.  I have seen a morning without clouds, after showers, so I know what beauty is.  I have read a book beside a wood fire, so I know what contentment is.  I have seen the miracle of the sunset, so I know what grandeur is.  And because I have perceived all these things, I know what wealth is.”

From Caper’s Weekly, Denver, Co.  circa  1935

(from Aunt Ruth‘s scrapbook from her year at Colorado College, 1935)

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
