Spring Cherry Blossoms and Moss

The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him. ~Auguste Rodin

Storms

Bursts as a wave that from the clouds impends, And swell’d with tempests on the ship descends; White are the decks with foam; the winds aloud Howl o’er the masts, and sing through every shroud: Pale, trembling, tir’d, the sailors freeze with fears; And instant death on every wave appears.

Homer (“Smyrns of Chios”) Quotes , Source: The Iliad

Bison Neighbors

Lots of people talk to animals. Not very many listen, though.  That’s the problem.     ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

They like carrots, celery and apples. Don’t feed them from your hand or you will lose fingers.

Still Still Still

Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.
For all is hushed,
The world is sleeping

Dream, dream, dream,
Of the joyous day to come.
While guardian angels without number,
Watch you as you sweetly slumber.
Dream, dream, dream,
Of the joyous day to come.

~Austrian Christmas Lullaby
