Getting Started

My first post. I am excited to begin working here. My plan is to be a conduit in Houston among funders and those who need funding, to be able to assist others and myself to realize a dream for Houston as a dynamic, caring, supportive city that welcomes anybody who wants a great place to work, breathe good air, play with a measure of wild abandon and live peacefully among neighbors. Let me know if I can help you, your organization or someone you know. Thank you very much!

We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts. Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details, worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour. If we refused, or rather used up, such paltry information as we get, the oracles would distinctly inform us how this might be done.
