There are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t yet met. – William Butler Yeats

I’m not sure if I agree with Yeats in stating that there are no strangers… and you don’t even yet know a person after you first meet them and sometimes you can be ‘friends’ with someone for many years and not know who they really are. So there is a caveat in there. I’ve experienced that we need to trust our gut instincts when it comes to people. I believe that our body senses things before the brain and heart do. I think that our heart and brain need to communicate with instincts to send clear message about a person.

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. – William Butler Yeats

I do believe that there’s magic all around us and some of us are more keen to see or experience the magic in the world. The artists, writers and creators are tuned into the frequency of magic. We can all experience and appreciate magic and I believe our lives are richer when we do.

Hope and memory have one daughter and her name is Art, and she has built her dwelling far from the desperate field where men hang out their garments upon forked boughs to be banners of battle.. A beloved daughter of Hope and Memory, be with me for a while. – W.B. Yeats

Yeats was very poetic with this statement about Hope and Memory creating Art which is why I Hope often, Dream often and remember as much as I can and capture things with my Art for all to experience.
