Since 1961, almost a quarter million Peace Corps Volunteers have served in 139 countries, tackling some of the world’s most important challenges!
A single gentle rain makes the grass many shades greener. So our prospects brighten on the influx of better thoughts. We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us.
Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.
—E.E. Cummings (via insanityace)
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. So medicine, law, business, engineering… these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love… these are what we stay alive for.
I dreamed of you
again last night
as the clouds became ghosts
and the wind became whispers
of your breath on my neck.
I woke to a smile
for you are not vanished
just gone adventuring
a little while.
