today i live in the quiet, joyous expectation of good quote ~ ernest holmen

to see a hillside white with dogwood bloom is to know a particular ecstasy of beauty, but to walk the gray winter woods and find the buds which will resurrect that beauty in another may is to partake of continuity. ~ hal borland

everything is happy

look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  everything is simply happy.  trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  look at the flowers – for no reason.  it is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.  ~ osho

i love the funkiness of this flowering succulent ~ God sure must have had a sense of humor…

my father just planted these berry vines and they are already flowering

and the beauty of the sunset

the sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, of pain, and hunger, and mosquitoes and silly people.  ~ ralph waldo emerson

walk the path

i’ve had fun playing with the perspective of this wooden pathway…

all you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don’t sit looking at it – walk. ~ ayn rand

we must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success. ~ henry david thoreau
