Life is playfulness, fun, because the whole existence is a tremendous circus. It is all fun–all the colors of the flowers, so many beautiful animals, birds, clouds, and for no purpose; they don’t serve any purpose. There is no goal to life. Life is a play unto itself. It is sheer abundance of energy, overflowing energy – existence goes on expanding.
The universe is wider than our views of it.
~Henry David Thoreau
Sit still and disengage normal activities.
Draw energy from the earth,
Admit power from the heavens.
Fertilize the seed within;
Let it sprout into a flower of pure light.
~ Deng Ming-Dao, 365 Tao: Daily Meditations
Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?
~ Neltje Blanchan
Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.
~ John Muir
We are not separate from this Earth; we are a part of it, whether we fully feel it in our bodies yet or not.
~ Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted
No water, no life. No blue, no green.
~ Sylvia Earle
The best thing about photography: it changes your point of view.
~ Nina Hrusa
Earth has many voices. Those who understand that Earth is a living being know this because they have translated themselves to the humble grasses and old trees. They know that Earth is a community that is constantly talking to itself; a communicating universe. And whether we know it or not, we are participating in the web of this community.
