Find out who you are and do it on purpose

Find out who you are and do it on purpose

“ Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”– Oscar Wilde


Few colours, much calmness


Still regenerating

Still regenerating

“To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness, to patience, and to allow things to come up to it; to defer judgment, and to acquire the habit of approaching and grasping an individual case from all sides. This is the first preparatory schooling of intellectuality. One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts.”  Friedrich Nietzsche,

In the fall, I believe again in poetry


Fall colors are funny

Fall colors are funny

“Fall colors are funny. They’re so bright and intense and beautiful. It’s like nature is trying to fill you up with color, to saturate you so you can stockpile it before winter turns everything muted and dreary.” ― Siobhan Vivian

When his heart was gone to the woods

In the fairy woods

It was very quiet. The woods were made for secrecy.

“When we lose these woods, we lose our soul. Not simply as individuals, but as a people.” ― Kevin Walker

Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you

Remember you are half water

Remember you are more than half water

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” ― Margaret Atwood

I am longing to be with you

I am longing to be with you,

let it sparkle

“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.” ― Bram Stoker

We were out running around the fields and playing

I’ve always had stamina. It’s a genetic thing. Don’t forget, I’m from the era where we played outside, so there was no issue with weight because we were out running around the fields and playing hide and seek.  – Tracie Bennett

Every now and then I sit and watch the sun rise

Sunrise – a time when all truths are still clean and enviable

Every now and then I sit and watch the sun rise to remind myself how it’s done—peacefully, steadily, warmly, and in beautiful color.  ― Richelle E. Goodrich

I’m happy when it’s raining

I'm happy when it's raining

it’s raining anyway

I’m happy when it’s raining. For, if I’m not happy, it’s raining anyway.  – K. Valentin

Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness

Casting shadow

don’t be frightened, dear friend

“So don’t be frightened, dear friend, if a sadness confronts you larger than any you have ever known, casting its shadow over all you do. You must think that something is happening within you, and remember that life has not forgotten you; it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall. Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness, any pain, any depression, since you don’t know what work they are accomplishing within you?” ― Rainer Maria Rilke

Casting shadow

remember that life has not forgotten you

Swim in the lake, swim yourself free

“When you truly sing, you sing yourself free. When you truly dance, you dance yourself free. When you walk in the mountains or swim in the sea, again, you set yourself free.” ― Jay Woodman

Smell the rain, and feel the wind.

Your mind tells you the smart thing to do, while your heart tells you what you’re going to do anyway

New plants for your herbs garden

All that man needs for health and healing has been provided in nature

“If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. This especially includes your health care.” – Andrew Saul

“This large and expensive stock of drugs will be unnecessary….The common resources of the lancet, a garden, a kitchen, fresh air, cool water, exercise, will be sufficient to cure all the diseases that are at present under the power of medicine.” –  Dr. Benjamin Rush

Some people are making such thorough preparation for rainy days that they aren’t enjoying today’s sunshine. –  William Feather
