Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

I'm a California Native transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks. I've learned how to chase cows in high heels and load hay faster than you can say "Coco Chanel." These are some of our pictures and stories of living in a land with breath-taking beauty and adventure around every bend.

Carl Jung quotations

--Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.

--Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.

--If there is anything we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.

--What is essential in a work of art is that it should rise far above the realm of personal life and speak to the spirit and heart of the poet as man to the spirit and heart of mankind.

--It all depends on how we look at things, and not on how they are themselves.

--To be normal is the ideal aim of the unsuccessful.

--The unconscious mind of man sees correctly even when conscious reason is blind and impotent.

--Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also.

--The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

--Observance of customs and laws can very easily be a cloak for a lie so subtle that our fellow human beings are unable to detect it. It may help us to escape all criticism, we may even be able to deceive ourselves in the belief of our obvious righteousness. But deep down, below the surface of the average man's conscience, he hears a voice whispering, "There is something not right," no matter how much his rightness is supported by public opinion or by the moral code.

--All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.
