The Love of Thousands

"Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.  Be still they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands."  - Linda Hogan

I love this Native American quote, I find it comforting.  When you think about all of those who have lived before you, whose DNA flows through your body and mind and heart, we are the result of the love of thousands.  I like to think that we are also, their experiences, their talents, and their thoughts, their good and bad.

We are all that they were.......I hope mine are proud who I am and that maybe in some way I have fulfilled some of their dreams. We are the result of the love of thousands......


  1. What a beautiful of thousands of those that came before us echoing through our souls.
    I have been following Rick and just realized that you had your own blog. I am your newest follower. I have loved reading Rick's blog and now feel that I know the "other side" of him-you! Diana

  2. And give love to thousands as well.

  3. I love seeing the traits and talents that my children and grandchildren have. I can see my Dad in my son's love of music, and my Great-Grandfather in my Granddaughter's artistic ability...and I see my Greek side when I fix food and celebrate with my family! I'm sure your family is proud of your celebration of life in your music and art. Have a good weekend!
