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!”

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
