Spiral of Revival

A  L  O  H  A !
" The turning point
 in the process of 
growing up 
is when you 
discover the 
core of strength 
within you 
that survives all hurt." 
                             Max Lerner 

" The spiral in a snail's shell
 is the same mathematically 
as the spiral in the Milky Way galaxy, 
and it's also the same mathematically 
as the spirals in our DNA. 
It's the same ratio 
that you'll find 
in very basic music 
that transcends cultures 
all over the world."
                     Joseph Gordon-Levitt

“In order to see birds
 it is necessary to
 become a part of
 the silence.” 
                    Robert Lynd


Thanks for Swinging By!
                            Warmly, cloudia

We get them here about once a year. As long as they are not bad, always enjoy riding them out. Hold on!
