Lake Bench

bench

“They sat on a park bench, held hands, and told each other their stories hour after hour. They were not lonely anymore. They had found and been found by their 100% perfect other. What a wonderful thing it is to find and be found by your 100% perfect other. It’s a miracle, a cosmic miracle.”
-Haruki Murakami

“Always find a time to sit on a humid autumn bench to feed the poor birds or to think the dying leaves!”
-Mehmet Murat ildan

pathway to sea

The imagination is the golden pathway to everywhere.
-Terence McKenna

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
-Khalil Gibran

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along lifes pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
-Joseph Addison

clouds

clouds2

Spiritual people don’t float around all day on clouds of glory; they live in the real world and deal with real issues in real ways.

-Joyce Meyer

In the language of poetry, where every word is weighed, nothing is usual or normal. Not a single stone and not a single cloud above it. Not a single day and not a single night after it. And above all, not a single existence, not anyone’s existence in this world.
-Wislawa Szymborska

Lakeside and Birds

sun and lake

A lake carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable.

lake and birds

I have finished reading The Innocents.

I am currently reading We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust. I am also reading the novel Orphan Train.

I have slowly returned to my normal routines. I still listen to the news, or read it online, but it doesn’t take up the majority of my day. Life seems to have somewhat returned to downtown Boston, too, on the block where the tragic events occurred. I give the people of the city credit for moving forward as best as they can, and staying strong, Boston strong! My prayers are a constant.

I managed a walk at the lake. The photographs above were taken during it.

Sorry for the update…my photographs were not shown correctly.
