“Night follows day; and day night.
The pendulum swings from Summer to Winter,
and then back again.
The corpuscles, atoms, molecules,
and all masses of matter,
swing around the circle of their nature.
There is no such thing as absolute rest,
or cessation from movement,
and all movement partakes of Rhythm.
The Universal Pendulum is ever in motion.
The Tides of Life flow in and out, according to Law.”
“Nothing stands still –
everything is being born, growing, dying –
the very instant a thing reaches its height,
it begins to decline –
the law of rhythm is in constant operations….”

The garden at Mossy Creek Pottery near Lincoln City, OR
“Green is the prime color of the world,
and that from which its loveliness arises.”
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
The Connie Hansen Garden, Lincoln City, OR in October
“This life is yours.
Take the power to choose what you want to do
and do it well. Take the power to love
what you want in life and love it honestly.
Take the power to walk in the forest
and be a part of nature.
Take the power to control your own life.
No one else can do it for you.
Take the power to make your life happy.”
Susan Polis Schutz
The Connie Hansen Garden, Lincoln City, OR
“I’d rather have roses on my table
than diamonds on my neck.”
Late October rose in our own garden
“Live in each season as it passes;
breathe the air, drink the drink,
taste the fruit, and resign yourself
to the influence of the earth.”
Henry David Thoreau

Herbs still blooming in our garden, late October
“All we have, it seems to me,
is the beauty of art and nature and life,
and the love which that beauty inspires.”
