"Love has survived from
the beginning of time.
It has been defined and
But long ago we discovered
love is essential to life.
We discovered that love
is life itself.
And anything we can do to
further its understanding and acceptance
will benefit us all."
Dr. Leo Buscaglia,
from Michael Bischoff
pledges were made on July 18th, 1998 during the world-wide tribute
to Dr. Leo Buscaglia's memory and his works, from Michael Bischoff, creator
of the Simply Love Website, a
website inspired and dedicated to the memory of Dr. Buscaglia.
Michael wrote of his experiences
on the Tribute "Sunset"
Although the southwestern US
is known for its wonderful sunsets, mother nature did not cooperate for
me: My chosen site was caught in a downpour accompanied by dances of lightning.
My site wound up being a place just
north of Chama, NM across the Colorado border, a lovely albeit nondescript
hill, pond and field along the Cumbres Pass known as Trujillo Meadows.
Having gone there many times before to pray and think things out, it felt
like the best spot even if it wasn't the most scenic.
I was not at all worried about
the cloudy or rainy sunsets, sometimes they can be quite magnificent too,
just not in a colorful way. I don't think that Leo would have been
disappointed with the tribute-in-a-downpour.
He always struck me as a "who
are you trying to impress?" type. A Person who given the choice between
a million dollars and a hug would take the hug.
Oh for the rest of the world
to be that way too...how rich we would all be...imagine a planet that converted
to the "hug standard" instead of the "gold standard"!!
I listened to Leo tapes up and
back (200 miles each way) and made notes for an upcoming writing that will
be something like an "All I Ever Needed To Know I Learned In Kindergarten"
a candle in my car, I made these pledges:
strive to do loving things first each day--before getting caught up in
show love to someone else at least once, on a daily basis.
do something charitable at least once a week.
keep doing what I can to promote a lifestyle of love and living it by example.
make sure I take the time to love myself as well.
strive to keep a positive attitude.
slow down and simplify, simplify, simplify!!!
bond with others on The World of
Dr. Leo Buscaglia, on Simply
Love, and anywhere I can, for mutual help, support & encouragement
at staying the path of love.
remember to take time for sunsets.
