Long-lost | Nature’s call

When I was a girl, I’d lay in the grass on a summer day, look up at the trees and listen to the wind whisper its secrets through the leaves. I do believe that when we are children, we are much more attuned to the language of nature and the universe. There is no alphabet for this language; it is something we feel and assimilate in a different way.

Mother Nature knows, too much computer and TV aren’t good for your mind, body or spirit. Whether you know it or not, she is waiting for you to return, to feel her language and love once again. She is a jewel, a treasure, just begging to be rediscovered. She will help heal your tattered soul, tired from the chaos of the world.

A quote from the classic book “Walden”, by Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), transcendentalist, writer, and a man who loved nature:

“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal – that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.”

Moonstruck | Night magic

What else evokes romance that is quite like moonlight? I speak not simply of love or lust, but also the quicksilver beauty of everything the Goddess touches.

She works her spell, reviving the mystery and magic of life. Just as the Sun nourishes and energizes, the Moon soothes and sparks our dreams.

No wonder the lake prince adores her. Which does beg the question, does she love him in return, or, just herself in his mirror? “A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”  (Henry David Thoreau, Walden)

Inspirational Quotes:

“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” ~ Oscar Wilde

“But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

“Man is the candle light and a woman is the moonlight. They live far away but can grow together during lonesome nights. ” ~ Santosh Kalwar

“I’ll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way.” ~ Alfred Noyes

“She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea, dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar.” ~ Janet Fitch

Sun Totem | Sunflower Luv

If you delude yourself that your sunflowers are impatiently awaiting your arrival in the garden, think again. They have only one thing on their minds, which is, “Where’s Mr. Sun now?” Any tiny part you play in their world pales in comparison.

The behavior of sunflowers turning to the sun is called heliotropism. They have a 24-hour tracking system that follows the sun everywhere. They’ve even been known to wait in the field at night with their faces turned to the east, awaiting the sunrise. Now that’s adulation!
