My columns are reflections of my true feelings and are always from my heart whether they are political, scientific, humorous or spiritual. They are really written for myself and the fact that they often deeply touch or effect others always fills me with gratitude: Allen L Roland
I love writing my columns and am extremely grateful for not only my gift as a writer but that many people seemingly enjoy my rants and musings. In that spirit here is my holiday donation request along with some of my favorite short poems of gratitude, as well as a musical gift for you.
Let me arise and open the gate,
Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.
He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not,
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
The great man is he who does not lose his childlike heart.
When it's over, I want to say: all my life
Gratitude is not only the greatest of the virtues, but the parent of all the others - Cicero
