dedicated to all who believe that life is long. . . and that dreams come true. "standstill is giving way. good fortune for the great (wo)man. 'what if it should fail, what if it should fail?' in this way (s)he ties it to a cluster of mulberry shoots." from the i-ching, hexagram 12, line 5 (wilhelm edition)
Every year we plant "heavenly blue" morning glory seedlings in front of the barn. By the Fall, their brilliant blooms create an evanescent blanket of blue, viewed from our kitchen window on foggy mornings in late October and November.
Each flower blooms in the morning and fades at night, a reminder to live each day as it opens and closes.
create our own world
“Every spirit builds itself a house; and beyond its house,
a world; and beyond its world a heaven. Know then, that the
world exists for you: build, therefore, your own world.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
