cosmos - historic meaning - peaceful

this is love:
to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First to let go of life.
Finally, to take a step without feet.

Rumi - Persian poet & mystic 13the century

Mostly crickets this early morning, I love their chorus. The gulls off in the distance. Bubbles pouring and a boat slowly leaving the harbour. The first golden light has just appeared. The days keep coming at me and I must begin to greet them as if they really are brand new.

  3. Love the song! And I love cosmos, too. I have a big bunch of tall orange ones in my garden this year. :)

    I enjoy your blog. Every day you bring us something to look at or to think about. Thanks.

  5. I exactly know those sounds..They are just so nostalgic!!
