Solace and Growth

 “When despair for the world grows in me, and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be — I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought or grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.” – Wendell Berry

Sunshine through Muhlenbergia grass - in the Fall Garden.

"No greater thing is created suddenly, 
any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. 
If you tell me that you desire a fig, 
I answer you that there must be time. 
Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen."
 - Epictetus

"Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave."

"That which does not destroy us makes us stronger."
