Morning 16/30

Mornings 12/30

Like liquid jewels, dripping from the vine in the morning sun. There is a certain optimism required to garden in the desert, the elements constantly reminding one of her place in the natural world; more Pestulance than Designer of History. But there is a daily renewal born with the sun and comfort in the quiet promises of a budding vine. And sometimes, on days like today, the renewal and comfort are a gentle salve when life stings a little.

Mornings 11/30

The means to gain happiness is to throw out from oneself like a spider in all directions an adhesive web of love, and to catch in it all that comes.
-Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy (1828-1910)
