Foundations

By: dragonflyF15 , 4:44 PM GMT on October 06, 2008

It is not enough to make something look good. The underlying principle must be good. How else could nature produce such majestic landscapes? They were not created for us to look at and approve. They were created because the laws of creativity were good. Now things are made to be temporary....to self-destruct. If it doesn't work very long...junk it. No wonder there are piles of debris. No wonder relationships struggle. The underlying principle is too often based on the idea that if it doesn't work instantly, get rid of it. Few things are as enduring as the hills, few things as calm and serene as the lake on a quiet day. But if we have no firm foundations on which to build, what can we expect but upheaval and having to begin again.



Been away lately cause it's my second busiest time of the year and working on foundations of the personal kind. :)

Hey Dragonfly, my take is everything is temporary and only change is certain. Even mountains shift after awhile. But you are so right that good foundations keep what is created around for the long haul.
For relationships it's patience and learning whats not made of rock must learn to bend sometimes. Good luck on your journey.

Beautiful writing, and "Foundations" is so true on so many levels. Wishing you success with building, rebuilding, and reinforcing your personal foundations. Good, solid, purposeful, and with room for future expansion!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and emailed inquiries. I think I have finally used up all the apples I picked a few weeks ago at the farm. Now on to squashes :)

Well off to plant the last of my mums cause tomorrow is to be a rainy stormy day. Then I'll be on the road 2 days. I'll try to catch up on emails via laptop :)

Hope everyone has a great day!
