Stillness



It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility.

  7. i love those perfectly round anemone buds. these ares ome of my favorite fall flowers. i have ones that are of the purist white imaginable!

    i turn to the earth with humility and reverence each and every day and feel renewed.

    p.s. i ended up on your about me page today and saw these book titles.

    The Thirteenth Tale The Way the Crow Flies Fall on Your Knees The Glass Castle The Red Tent Blackberry Wine Chocolat The Kite Runner The Time Traveller's Wife

    i love Anna Marie MacDonald and listened to her read The Way The Crow Flies. it was stunning to read and mesmerizing to listen to. and the Time Travelers Wife has got to be the most compelling love story i have ever read. I enjoyed both the Kit Runner and The Red Tent tremendously. and Fall On Your Knes changed my life. now i will add The Thirteenth Tale and the Glass Castle to my list of must reads!
