i watch her brooding — soft downy breastfeathers warming nestlings still encased in fragile shells her wordless lullaby as soothing as the lapping of the waterand the rustle of our Father’s wings…

The water we hold sacred is not some abstract image or fantasy of Water, but the real stuff that we need to drink and bathe and grow our gardens, that provides the crucial habitat for fish and plants and  thousands of other creatures, that is the Earth’s literal life blood.

In the armadillo circle, In that armour-plated set
The philosophy is simple, what you see ain’t what you get
In the armadillo culture, in that well-protected creed
a solid hide to hide in is the only thing you’ll need…
~Tim Rice/Elton John: Hey Armadillo~

Zhangye Danxia landform in Gansu, China. The amazing rainbow colour effect is reportedly the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits being laid down for over 24 million years.

I have never enjoyed store-bought scented candles because their scent was too “in your face” and artificial. The candle/floral arrangement above, aside from looking pretty, uses gentle heat to encourage the flowers to release their beautiful natural fragrance. Win-win situation! :)

"Libraries still for me have this extraordinary charge…when I go in one I feel this buzz. It’s almost sexual, there’s something about the fact that behind all these bound copies there are voices. There are people murmuring to you, seducing you, dragging you into their world. These are wonderful, magical places…" ~Stephen Fry~

Photos of a public library located near Prague Castle within Strahov Monastery, a seat of the Premonstratensian Order since the 12th Century. The library contains a large collection of books, with some dating back to the 9th Century. The books, although not allowed to be taken out of the monastery, can be perused and read by the visitors during regular hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 7 days a week throughout the year.

The problem with cats is that they get the exact same look on their face whether they see a moth or an axe-murderer.
