Through The Common

A  L  O  H  A !
"To live content with small means; 
to seek elegance rather than luxury, 
and refinement rather than fashion;
 to be worthy, not respectable, 
and wealthy, not rich; to listen 
to stars and birds, babes 
and sages, with open heart;

to. . .  grow up 
through the common-
-this is my symphony. 
              William Henry Channing, 
                     1810 - 1884 

"A bench in the street 
can be a good writer 
because all kind of 
material comes onto 
it like a heavy rain!
                Mehmet Murat ildan
