“It is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better.
The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends oneself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt 26th President of the U.S. and winner of 1906 Nobel Peace Prize
Precious treasure in Blue, the sea Precious treasure in you, I see…… Ebony glowing Skin touched by first light, beautiful summer morning Her smiling Dayspring, dawning God’s grace you posess An image of what I would imagine an angle’s face What did I do to deserve this much peace A small piece of heavenly peace Beautiful panaromic sun setting, drowning in a lake, the view So organically beautiful it reminds me of you Breathtaking such pleasure to view Fortunate, a pleasure for a select few Running, panting, gasping for you Precious in natural Precious treasure in ebony, the Hue Precious treasure is you

“Some express an emotion, visually through paint and brush on a canvas, Painting. Some carve out a feeling on a piece of rock, assign character and breathe life into it, Sculpture. Some strum strings, massage keys humming a melody of pain, loneliness, inspiration, hope, joy and love, Music. Some capture a flash fleeting moment along with all the feelings and emotions evoked at a particular moment in time, pause it and store it forever, Photography. I do all of the above in words and call it Poetry.” ~ Takwana Nhamo
