I was in my yard and thought that the tree was a living being. We take trees for granted. We don’t believe they are as much alive as we are.
~ Ziggy Marley
Watching birds has become part of my daily meditation affirming my connection to the earth body.
~ Carol P. Christ
Nights and days came and passed
And summer and winter
and the rain.
And it was good to be a little Island.
A part of the world
and a world of its own
All surrounded by the bright blue sea.
~ Margaret Wise Brown, The Little Island
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
If turnips were watches, I’d wear one by my side.
If Ifs and Ands were pots and pans
There’d be no work for tinkers’ hands.
~ English rhyme
