Because we are surrounded in beauty.
“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”
― Anne Frank
“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
― Marc Riboud
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
“Beauty is not caused. It is.”
― Emily Dickinson
“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”
― Frederick Buechner
“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James
“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”
“As if you were on fire from within.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin.”
― Pablo Neruda
Neruda is my favourite poet.
One more for luck:
“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.”
― John Donne
I know you all see beauty every day in the smallest and most unusual places. That’s why you, The Fellowship, are beautiful. Even though we live in all corners of this spinning, reluctant, unpredictable globe, though a globe has no corners, and we can predict the sunrise. And sometimes people are mean and we don’t understand why, even so, we have found each other. Let the mean people hear their own words echo in our silence, we shall not join them.
Welcome to all the new members of The Fellowship of the Farmy. Remember that if you like an image you are welcome to steal it. If you like a comment you are welcome to join in anywhere. If you like a thread you are welcome to pull on it. And if you like my words you are welcome to share them. Kindness is our greatest strength. Apply the kindness.
Have a lovely day.
your friend on the farm, celi
