Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift. 

~ Albert Einstein


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




Like a shadow I am and I am not.

~ Rumi



The way is long if one follows precepts, but short... if one follows patterns.

~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca
