Grizzled Skipper (Pyrgus malvae)

As I grew older,
I realized that it was much better to insist on the genuine forms of nature,
for simplicity is the greatest adornment of art.

Simplicity

There is wisdom
in a simple snowflake,
sunshine
in a lonely smile,
silence
in a softly falling
autumn leaf.
There is joy
in laying out
upon the landscape,
tears
hidden deep
beyond life shadows
casted in stone and memories.
There is redemption
found in the goodness
of a caring heart,
whispers
that give away compassion,
freedom
in listening to a new dawn.
There is a touch
that descends well past feeling,
knowledge
deeper than the universe,
love
softer and richer then life
and visions
clearer than the greatest minds.

Mirrors of Our Highest Selves

We need more kindness, more compassion,
more joy, more laughter.
I definitely want to contribute to that.

Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality.
It is a state of mind.
If your mind is at peace, you are happy.
If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy.
If you have everything the world can give –
pleasure, possessions, power –
but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer,
it sings because it has a song.
