It is only with gratitude that life becomes rich…


“In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich”. -Dietrich Bonhoeffer

I am grateful for the weather slowly warming up, the small buds beginning to form on my favorite tree, for the lighter evenings, and the gorgeous sunset I saw on my walk home last night. For another day, another hour, another moment.

Be steeped in the light of them…


“Shut your eyes, wait, think of nothing. Now, open them … one sees nothing but a great coloured undulation. What then? An irradiation and glory of colour. This is what a picture should give us … an abyss in which the eye is lost, a secret germination, a coloured state of grace … loose consciousness. Descend with the painter into the dim tangled roots of things, and rise again from them in colours, be steeped in the light of them.” -Paul Cézanne
