Wind

“Sometimes I don’t know which moment, which cool gust of wind will come, and enchant me tousling my hair and my heart, stirring…that familiar ache of poetry. Which drop will kiss the old wrench in my soul; reminding me all over again I miss you better in the rain.” Sanober Khan

Summer Breeze

“Close your eyes and turn your face into the wind.
Feel it sweep along your skin in an invisible ocean of exultation.
Suddenly, you know you are alive.” Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Inner Beauty

“Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don’t see what goes on underground – as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don’t see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.” Joyce Meyer

From the Soil

“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” Wendell Berry, The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture
