last day

New Year's Eve

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

-Alfred, Lord Tennyson

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.

-William Ellery Channing

love demands

Paradoxically, we achieve true wholeness only by embracing our fragility and sometimes, our brokenness. Wholeness is a natural radiance of love, and love demands that we allow the destruction of our old self for the sake of the new.

an hour

To see a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

-William Blake
