Forever dancing, we are neither lions, nor scarcrows, but tin men dancing for our hearts - Daniel Sendecki
Daniel Sendecki poetry ©


I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains.
I do not wish to go below now.

Henry David Thoreau (1817–62)
