A Bright Future Begins With You

The future is an open landscape resting at our feet. We each define it, day by day, through our perception of it and the steps we knowingly choose to take.

By perpetuating the good, we can make it a bright, shining playground for all!happy-bright-new-year-2015-ana-livingston-photography-copyrighted

“The Grandness That Is You” by Ana Livingston

What is the value of a woman
Filled with the wonder of you?

Who never sees shortcomings
Just the grandness that is you?

“The Meaning of Success” – by Ralph Fiennes

“The people I consider successful are so because of how they handle their responsibilities to other people, how they approach the future, people who have a full sense of the value of their life and what they want to do with it.

“I call people successful not because they have money or their business is doing well but because, as human beings, they have a fully developed sense of being alive and engaged in a lifetime task of collaboration with other human beings — their mothers and fathers, their family, their friends, their loved ones, the friends who are dying, the friends who are being born.

“Success.. is all about being able to extend love to people… not in a big, capital letter sense but in the everyday. Little by little, task by task, gesture by gesture, word by word.”

-Actor, Ralph Fiennes

“We Are One” – a Poem by Ana Livingston

Quiet fulfillment
Caresses me now
Silently, gently,
We are one.

“My Fragile Stream of Love” – A Poem by Ana Livingston

I claw at self-made walls,
For decades they’ve stood firm
My fragile stream of love
Now seeks its way, unearned.

“He Haunts My Mind” – a Poem by Ana Livingston

In addition to my murals and other art forms that keep me busy in my otherwise idle moments (oil on canvas, charcoal, pencil, and the like), I am also a published poet.  Here is one piece written about a year and a half ago entitled “He Haunts My Mind”.
