"Fall in love with your solitude” ~Rupi Kaur










“I preferred 
to look at 
the 
sea, 
which said 
nothing 
and never 
made you feel 
alone.” 

― Paula McLain

of a 
second.”

“Our imagination flies -- we are its shadow on the earth.” ~Vladimir Nabokov



















“Winter
teetered on the
verge
of succumbing to the
returning
sun,
but today
the breeze still preferred
the touch
of snowflakes”

-Rue

“With all colors combined the world shines” ~Arefin Bashar Arif








“We walked 
always 
in beauty, 
it seemed to me. 
We walked 
and looked about, 
or stood 
and looked. 
Sometimes, 
less often, 
we would sit 
down. 
We did not often 
speak. 
The place spoke 
for us 
and was a kind of 
speech. 
We spoke to each other 
in the things 
we saw.” 

~Wendell Berry

“When we look up at the sky, we are trying to find the way back to ourselves” ~Jostien Gaarder














“But the sky...
cumulonimbus clouds are 
stacked 
and banked 
to the stratosphere, 
and the lowering sun 
has bronzed 
and brassed 
and blushed 
them. 
These are clouds 
to make you long 
for wings. 
These are clouds 
that leave you not knowing 
what 
to believe. 

~Michael Perry
