Sometimes I Think

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Sometimes I think
there are only two
instructions we need
to follow to develop
and deepen our
spiritual life:
slow down and let go.

We live at the edge of 
the miraculous.

Persevere. There is
one dandelion that
grows from the crack
in the cement.
Let that one
dandelion be YOU.
     Margaret Aranda

Strelitzia nicolai, commonly known as the giant white bird of paradise or wild banana, is a species of banana-like plants with erect woody stems reaching a height of 6 m (20 ft), and the clumps formed can spread as far as 3.5 m (11 ft).

The 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in)-long leaves are grey-green and arranged like a fan at the top of the stems, similar to Ravenala madagascariensis.  The entire flower can be as much as 18 cm (7.1 in) high by 45 cm (18 in) long, and is typically held just above the point where the leaf fan emerges from the stem.

One does not discover
new lands without
consenting to lose
sight of the shore
for a very long time.

 Inconvenience is
an adventure
wrongly considered.

Blogger is hiding images from me at the moment (but not consistently).
I think the thing we most need to remember is to be kind. To ourselves as well as others. Slowing down doesn't go astray either.
