Invictus by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Day 362

Day 362- The LOVE Project

The best part of the LOVE Project besides spreading Light and Love is… I committed myself to a year of creating something about Love everyday and reading other people’s beautiful inspirations about Love. In essence, the moment I wake in the morning I ask my angels & spirit guides, “What would be the most beneficial thing I could post about Love today.” The answer comes surprising quickly.

For many years, the first thoughts I experienced in the morning were fearful. I’d wake to worried and chaotic thoughts buzzing inside my head. In fact, I used to worry about everything: work, money, love, and family, to name a few. It’s refreshing not to spend my life worrying, and being stuck in all the fear generated by negative thinking. It’s taken many years to reach a place of calm, and in the midst of difficult circumstances have the ability to change my perspective and energy from fearful to loving. Quite a gift indeed!

Let LOVE In.

The LOVE Project- 365 Days of LOVE

The holidays are behind us, and a New Year has emerged with the promise of hope and better days. In the past couple months I've been immersed with the release of EVIDENCE OF ANGELS. It's quite an experience to have the opportunity to create a book out of a profoundly personal and life- changing event. The book is a reflection of the journey I embarked upon after the death of a beloved friend. By writing and photographing this book I began a new journey. It is one thing to have an inspiration, even if given to you by the angels, and then bring it to life. Many angels, both ethereal and earthly supported me in its creation, and I am forever grateful for their kindness, inspiration and Love. I began another adventure on Sept. 29th, the day EVIDENCE OF ANGELS was released to the public. My intention for writing this book was to support others during their times of despair and grief. The message of the book is that we are never alone because we are surrounded by legions of angels.

Since the release of the book I've received many gifts to support me in learning new life lessons. The greatest gift is the awareness that in every moment I have the ability to choose a loving response to whatever external circumstances are happening in my life. A couple weeks ago I had an inspiration to begin The LOVE Project-365 Days on Face Book. Simply put, each day brings a new reflection or inspiration about Love. I felt the project would help me remember to choose Love and could help others as well.

I invite you to join The LOVE Project-365 Days

What happens when someone dies? Are we alone in this world? Beginning with the death of a loved one, the first-person narrative takes us on a journey to discover the answer to these long-standing questions and in the process discovers angels amongst us: "I had seen angels in the library, in the park, at the fountain, almost everywhere I turned in the city. . ." The author researches angels and their purposes, from the Angel of Grief to the Angel of Winter, of Courage, of Healing, of Compassion, and so on. She collects stories from people throughout the city who have experienced angels, and hears messages as she creates photographs and conducts research. In her research, Scalora discovers that visions of angels have been associated with color throughout time, and her collection of photographs extends that association. The pictures are vibrantly colored, evoking an emotional reaction from the viewer tied with the ephemeral topic. In the tradition of her past work, most notably The Fairies (HarperTeen, 1999), Scalora blurs the line between fiction and nonfiction as she creates impressive photos of another world within the one we know. The text is short, but the photos hold viewers at each page so they can be studied. This is a beautiful book that will interest many—even those who aren't believers. Reviewer: Joyce Doyle
