Be glad of life…


“Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to live and to work and to play and to look up at the stars” -Henry Van Dyke

Last hyacinth photo for a while…I’ll be throwing in some more variety…just couldn’t get over how beautiful they are…if only I could transmit the lovely smell as well.

The life around me…


“I must interpret the life around me as I interpret the life that is my own. My life is full of meaning to me. The life around me must be full of significance to itself. If I am to expect others to respect my life,
then I must respect the other life I see, however strange it may be to mine” –Albert Schweitzer

Delicious ambiguity…


“I wanted a perfect ending… Now, I’ve learned, the hard
way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear
beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking
the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen
next. Delicious ambiguity” –Gilda Radner

I think “delicious” is one of my favorite words…I love how the very sound of it is just as wonderful as the thing it describes. I can’t think of a more appropriate word in describing the scent of fresh hyacinth. I bought a few bunches this weekend at the green market so expect a few more pictures of them ahead. This quote rings so true about the place I’m in my life right now. I’m trying to just allow things to happen naturally and unknowingly. Sometimes it just feels better to let go…
