The Beautiful Ordinary

The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it. If a mountain is a deity, not a pile of ore; if a river is one of the veins of the land, not potential irrigation water; if a forest is a sacred grove, not timber; if other species are our biological kin, not resources; or if the planet is our mother, not an opportunity - then we will treat each one with greater respect. This is the challenge, to look at the world from a different perspective."

~ David Suzuki




Trees go forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling around The Sun two million miles a day through space heaven knows how fast and far!

~ John Muir



Consider how very fortunate you are. 

Consider it every day.

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
