Flowers

Wildflower path. (Bremen, Maine. June 2017)

How, in our modern world, can we find our way to understand the earth as a gift again, to make our relations with the world sacred again?

~ Robin Wall Kimmerer

Look up

Looking up in the woods to see the trees are greening and leafing out.

Learn to look up now and then, just in case a piano is falling from overhead.

Inspiring film

Somewhere near Stowe, Vermont. (June 2017)

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

~Rumi

I learned…that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic, striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.

Clouds

Earth Day clouds.

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reason and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.

~ Richard Bach

Secret wish

 

Make a wish.

A wish is many things. It is apprehension and anticipation. It is lucky coins and dandelion fluff and rainbows stretching to forever. It is loves-me after loves-me-nots and a pile of plucked flower petals at your feet. It’s purple bikes and getting picked first and a passing grade in math. It’s the marvelous and the miraculous. It’s hunger and heartache. A wish is something extraordinary that you never hoped to have.

Or something very ordinary that most people take for granted.

~ John David Anderson, Granted 

Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.

~ Francesca Lia Block

Reflection

Reflection

In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery. It’s the place of reflection and contemplation, and it’s the place where we can connect with the deep knowing, to the deep wisdom way.

~Angeles Arrien
