On Simplicity

Thoreau did not live to be very old and, even so, what profound sentiments filled his relatively short life.  I took this picture of a white pine at its prime and photoshopped the image to get this effect, adding the quote from HDT below:

In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness.

For Love is Lord of All …

Life is fatal. It is not a question that we all die … but how we live.

To live is to love with a sense of community … since no one lives without the kindness and good will of others on some level. Happiness and survival, then, are linked by love; and health, gained by living in a mutual effort to make our lives as rich and meaningful as is possible in this very short time on Earth … leaving a better place for our children.

When we see others suffering, as a consequence, it is our family that we see suffering, since we are all part of this fabric of life, and our understanding, deep-rooted and wordless.  Clean food, water and air are basic. To destroy these things for the profit of a few is not healthy and it is, in fact, a sign of dysfunction on a global scale and profoundly disturbing.

What will we do about the assault on the health of this planet? Are we working fast enough and diligently enough to install the systems necessary for peaceful coexistence? Building the resources for education of our children, all children, so that our species will evolve to a higher plain?

Time will tell. Will we have enough of it before our life as a species runs its course?

For the sake of our beautiful planet.

An interesting image taken of lights from a bus window one night … slow mo.  I cleaned up the image a little; and had inadvertantly created the image of a heart in the upper quadrant.
