Old & New

The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.                                       Wendell Berry (The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture)

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life! ~Unknown

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

Nurturing Thursday: Realize

Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art. ~Maya Angelou

***************

I haven’t been using my camera for a while. I am not aware of the exact reason but I guess recent circumstances didnn’t encourage me. Just yesterday evening I thought of taking it out on a walk. The change in routine got me engaged in a creative process and for sure lift my spirit.

Do something which helps you in changing your mood and brings a smile.

Stay safe and healthy.
