Forest of Life

 you need to get lost
 in the forest of life.

I think a photography class should be a requirement
 in all educational programs 
because it makes you see the world
 rather than just look at it.

Hoarse Whisper

The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; 
I cannot quite make it out.

Life Implies

Who will tell whether one happy moment 
of love or the joy of breathing 
or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air,
 is not worth all the 
suffering and effort which 
life implies.
~Erich Fromm~

There and Back Again

by Kimbo Baggins

We had a wonderful vacation.  
So much so, that we forgot to take pictures while we were at Susy's.  
Fortunately, Kim was able to take a gazillion from the car! :)  
So, here is the drive down and back from Kim's point of view.

A good friend is a connection to life -
 a tie to the past,
 a road to the future, 
the key to sanity
 in a totally insane world.

Come Home!

Missing someone gets easier every day
 because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, 
it's one day closer to the next time you will.

Pay Attention

There is a way that nature speaks,
 that land speaks. 
 Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, 
quiet enough
 to pay attention to the story.

all the paint on it you can.

Turn Towards Home

If you're not sure which direction to go,
turn towards home.

The blog is all Becca until the 21st as I'm going on a road trip.
Be good Happy Hippies!
Keep your hearts full of peace, love, and happiness!

Gardening is the art 
that uses flowers and plants as paint,
and the soil and sky as canvas.

It is imperative to maintain portions of the wilderness untouched 
so that a tree will rot where it falls, 
a waterfall will pour its curve without generating electricity, 
a trumpeter swan may float on uncontaminated water
 - and moderns may at least see what their ancestors knew in their nerves and blood.  ~Bernand De Voto, Fortune, June 1947~

Camping Day Four

How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast 
has this glorious starry firmament for a roof!  
In such places standing alone on the mountain-top 
it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make 
- leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone - 
we all dwell in a house of one room 
- the world with the firmament for its roof - 
and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track.  
~John Mui~

Camping Day Three

It always rains on tents.  
Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, 
against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.  
~Dave Barry~

Camping Day Two

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, 
whether in summer or winter, 
and is about as ample at one season as at another.  
It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.  
~Henry David Thoreau~
