doors of perception

doors of perception

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.

We feel nostalgic, we dwell in the memories of the past, we talk about how great those days were and how we would do anything to just go back in time and live those days again..

Perhaps we fail to realize the fact that tomorrow we will say the same things about today, about the days we are living in now, about the emotions we are feeling now, about the time we are spending now..

I love this day. I love this weird feeling I feel today. I belong here.”
~ Sanhita Baruah

Just before the green begins there is the hint of green
a blush of color, and the red buds thicken
the ends of the maple’s branches and everything
is poised before the start of a new world,
which is really the same world
just moving forward from bud
to flower to blossom to fruit
to harvest to sweet sleep, and the roots
await the next signal, every signal
every call a miracle and the switchboard
is lighting up and the operators are
standing by in the pledge drive we’ve
all been listening to: Go make the call.

“April Prayer”

Sometimes you get lucky and you discover that perfect poem…I read this on my friend Shawna’s Site and had to share it with you.

I made the call.

Hello May

So good to see you!

greatness in small things

“When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else, are doomed to die, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment?”

~ Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog
