“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.” -Georgia O’Keefe

“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere,
they’re in each other all along.”
-Rumi

 

And one of the loveliest lovesongs of the ages, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Mark Knopfler:

Flocking red-winged blackbirds have always been a favorite of mine this time of year. And I’ve wanted to figure out how to relay the experience of witnessing their mesmerizing unified dance. This A M A Z I N G piece does just that.

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know
to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.
You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

– Steve Paul Jobs

“We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own – indeed, to embrace the whole creation in all its diversity, beauty, and wonder. This will happen if we see the need to revive our sense of belonging to a larger family of life with which we have shared our evolutionary process. In the course of history there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground, a time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other.

That time is now. “

– Wangari Maathai

Rejoice that we made it through the Snowpocalypse…

Music was playing in the house while the birds ate and frolicked outside. Wait for the big ending. Oh, the little things!

Time to spread your wings and soar.

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you
must go back and tell people that it is THE Hour. And there are things to
consider:

Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are
you in right relation? Where is your water?

Know your garden. It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be
good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there
are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold onto the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the
shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our
heads above the water. And I say, see who is there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves.
From the moment we do our spiritual growth comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word
‘struggle’ from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done
in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting
for.”

-A Hopi Elder
