Contemplative Monday


The following is a quote from 'The Pocket Thich Nhat Hanh' (click)
and published by 'Shambhala Pocket Classics'.

TOUCHING THE EARTH


"With the earth you are very safe.


She is always there, in all her wonderful expressions like trees,
flowers, butterflies, and sunshine.


Whenever you are tired or unhappy,
Touching the Earth is a very good practice to heal you and restore your joy."

  1. Heart touching words, and your photos echo them to perfection. Tomorrow I will go and find some dirt, or rather, find the earth that is the one thing that binds us together, maybe a little bit drifts across the oceans. Beautiful photos, I can see them framed and on your wall.
