silence on a hot summer night in ann arbor
“the most significant conversations of our lives occur in silence.”
-simon van boy
“two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves.
they flickered out saying:
“It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds.”

peace does not mean to be in a place
with no chaos, trouble, or hard realities to deal with.
peace means to be in the midst of all those things
and still remain mentally, emotionally, and physically centered.

my view on the way to work today
with a full moon still in the sky
the beautiful calm after the storm.
“kindness is like snow—it beautifies everything it covers.”
“even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.”
to spend a few days
immersed in peaceful and historical beauty
“if you can attain repose and calm, believe that you have seized happiness.”

after learning about artist, andy goldsworthy
the kinders create in his style
leaving it all behind
to return to nature in its own time.
“simplicity is nature’s first step, and the last of art.”
