This is the time when I finally have to discover the beauty of the area that I live in. Hiking in the woods has always brought me a sense of inner peace. It is time I reclaim that by finding special places in nature where I can feel the sun on my face, and smell the earth lingering in the air. So here is my link to my Springpad collection of places that I would like to go. It's time....
I hope to add to this collection regularly as the weather get's better. Please click here for my in and around Ithaca Hikes-----> Janice Brodowsky : Springpad Collection of Hikes in and Around Ithaca NY
To see the rest of the gorge, proceed south on Lake Street and up Gun Hill. Half way up the hill on the left you will see an old smoke stack on the former site of the Ithaca Gun Company, which made world-famous shotguns for over a century and was, at one time, powered by Fall Creek.
Continue up the hill, and turn left onto University Avenue and then left onto Stewart Avenue at the “T” in the road. You will pass over the Stewart Avenue Bridge. Immediately after the bridge, take a right onto Fall Creek Drive.

"I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we're all put on this planet for a purpose, and we all have a different purpose... When you connect with that love and that compassion, that's when everything unfolds."

"Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values."
I haven't really followed much of what Ellen DeGeneres had to say, but I found this quote to be right on the mark.

"The starting point is realizing that letting go is not a dramatic moment we build upto some time in the future. It is happening now, in the present moment—it is not singular but ongoing. Letting go is based on our present realization of the reality of impermanence."

“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”
I found this to be a profound quote. Seems simple in theory, however we all know it takes lots of work to change old beliefs. Although these old beliefs generate pain, it is familiar, and hard to change. Let this quote serve as a reminder that positive change is possible, and trying the same thing over and over again, will not produce different results.

A simple thought that sometimes seems the most complicated. Think about it....
