2015-03-28 09.39.15-3“Gardening is the handiest excuse for being a philosopher.  Nobody guesses, nobody accuses, nobody knows, but there you are, Plato in the peonies, Socrates force-growing his own hemlock.  A man toting a sack of blood manure across his lawn is kin to Atlas letting the world spin easy on his shoulder” – Ray Bradbury

 

Reincarnation

“Corn whiskey has wrecked by body, a false hearted lover on my mind. I’ve roamed this whole world over, Pleasures here on earth I cannot find. When my earthly stay is over, sink my dead body in the sea. Just tell my false hearted lover, that the whales will watch over me” IMG_7028

Star Stuff

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made of the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff.”
– Carl Sagan

– Laura Ingalls Wilder (The Long Winter)
