Refuse To Give Up

When we refuse to take no for an answer,
we help rekindle our thoughts,
we protect them,
imbibe them,
never letting our opinions die.

And as we nurture our views,
they stay inside us like a burning flame, and such views slowly but surely leaven and shape our mind to live a beautiful life.

          1. I often teach out of my studio or through a non-profit organization like an art museum or healing center. But for my day job, I work in a law office. Your writing is so insightful. Where do you get your inspiration?

            1. How beautiful. I used to teach when I was in college and that I definitely want to do it again. For me Inspiration comes from all sources – I just love life and a fair observant. Thank you for your lovely comment. Are you in the US?

              1. I am. Currently in the state of Montana. From following your blog, I see you have been in many places. What country do you consider home? And is that different from where you currently live?
