“In a cool solitude of trees
Where leaves and birds a music spin,
Mind that was weary is at ease,
New rhythms in the soul begin.”
William Kean Seymour


“Looking at beauty in the world,
is the first step of purifying the mind.”
Amit Ray
“Man is so made
that he can only find relaxation from one kind of labor
by taking up another. ”
Anatole France
“Relationships are steppingstones
for the evolution of our consciousness.
Each interaction we have, be it one of joy or contrast,
allows us to learn more about who we are
and what we want in this lifetime.
They bring us into greater alignment…
as long as we continue to move forward
and do not get attached
to hurt, anger, or being a victim.”
Alaric Hutchinson

Happy wishes to you for just the sort

of happiness and relaxation you need today,

so that you are energized and ready for the coming season!

“One day a week I seek to rest
from earthly toil and sorrow.
Revitalized, I find the strength
to battle new tomorrows.”
