I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Yea, on the glancing wing of eager birds, the softly pattering feet of furred and gentle beasts. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Not borne on the morning's wings of majesty, but I have set My feet amidst the delicate and bladed wheat. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord.
-Evelyn Underhill

Childhood


"I remember I used to half believe and wholly 
play with fairies when I was a child....  

....What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense, to fear no longer the terror that flieth by night, yet to feel truly and understand a little, a very little, of the story of life.” 

-Beatrix Potter

Infinity


To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.  
–from "Auguries of Innocence", William Blake

Wise old owl lived in an oak; 
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard:
Why can’t we all be like that bird.

Goodnight 2017


“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

~Lewis Carroll




Goodnight, 2017

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
