Ahh my friends.... summer is here.
It's really a time when we should all slow down a bit. Staying busy can be good for us but only to a certain point. If you're not yet feeling that sweet, slow summer vibe, maybe these images and words will inspire this evening. :)
"This is June, the month of grass and leaves...
already the aspens are trembling again,
and a new summer is offered to me."
-Henry David Thoreau
"I want to be magic.
I want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile.
I want to be under a tree or on a hill
and marry a moonbeam and hear the stars sing.
I don't want to pretend to be magic anymore.
I want to be magic."
-Charles de Lint
"I was never really insane except upoun occasions
when my heart was touched."
-Edgar Allen Poe
"I am at one with a sea of sensations,
glitter, silk, skin, eyes, mouths,
"At any rate, let us love for awhile, a year or so,
you and me. That's a form of divine drunkenness
we can all try."
-S. Scott Fitzgerald
"It's because everything must end
that everything is so beautiful."
"It was time to move on,
to dance with life again."
