“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting.
The soul that rises with us, our life’s star,
hath had elsewhere its setting, and comet from afar:
not in entire forgetfulness,
and not in utter nakedness,
but trailing clouds of glory do we come from God,
who is our home.”
Ode: Intimations of Immortality
“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.”
John Keats, Endymion
“Nothing is impossible. If you set your mind and heart on it,
there is nothing you cannot do or achieve.”
Some of the things I enjoy……
….sitting on the beach and witnessing the shades of night appearing as the sun sets to the sound of the waves.
…..walking in nature and discovering time and again the miracle and perfect wisdom of life and creation all around us
….watching young children fully engaged in play. Their innocence, sweetness and openness is a window to and reminder of the essence in all of us.
Last year I started sketching and painting again after many years. Since then I have also developed a passion for photography and becoming a member of the very creative and talented RedBubble community has certainly been an inspiration.
Anyway, I hope you like what you see……..and thank you for visiting.
