“For what you see and hear
depends a good deal on
where you are standing:
it also depends on
what sort of person you are.”
I see a heart, a playful otter, and a flexed bicep…
What do you see?
“The sound of the water…
says what I think.”
“So many tangles in life
are ultimately hopeless
that we have no appropriate
sword other than laughter.”
Gordon W. Allport
“Life is thickly sown with thorns,
and I know no other remedy
than to pass quickly through them.
The longer we dwell on our misfortunes,
the greater is their power to harm us.”
“She tells me she wants to be a raindrop.
She doesn’t mind falling.
As long as she’s not alone,
and raindrops are never alone.”
When Five Fell – by Wong Fu Productions
“It is always the simple things
that change our lives.
And these things never happen when
you are looking for them to happen.
Life will reveal answers at the pace
life wishes to do so.
You feel like running,
but life is on a stroll.
This is how God does things.”
The ice on the tip of this new growth really hit home to me the relative pace at which water drips/melts, how instead of a solitary drop, a frigid mountainscape formed… if only until the thaw.
“Beauty is our weapon against nature;
by it we make objects,
giving them limit, symmetry, proportion.
Beauty halts and freezes
the melting flux of nature.”
“Service to humanity is service to God.
Let the love and light of the Kingdom
radiate through you until all who look
upon you shall be illumined by its reflection.
Be as stars, brilliant and sparkling
in the loftiness of their heavenly station.”
“You were aimed from birth:
you will never be alone.
Rain will come, a gutter filled, an Amazon,
long aisles — you never heard so deep a sound,
moss on rock, and years. You turn your head —
that’s what the silence meant: you’re not alone.
The whole wide world pours down.”
