A Walk Always Helps

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

-John Muir

Oneness with the Universe

A universe to be at one with

A universe to be at one with

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.

― Nicholas Black Elk

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

What Time Do You Have?

The trouble is, you think you have time.

From Where Have You Come?

So How Is Winter for You?

Everyone keeps asking – since I’ve moved from San Francisco to the Chicago area – how it’s going for me. How am I adjusting to winter in the midwest. Actually, I think that the snow is beautiful, and, really, it’s people that I miss. And I stumbled upon this quote the other day:

People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.
– Anton Chekhov

But I don notice that people don't sit on the snow cushions on these benches

But I do notice that people don’t sit on the snow cushions on these benches
