Walk/drive/jump/hop outside.

There are clouds, there are breezes, there are flowers, and most of all, there is life.

*sigh* What a wonderful world.

Excerpt from 'Letters to a Young Poet' a la R. Maria Rilke, letter number five...

"No, there is not more beauty here than in other places, and all these objects, which have been marveled at by generation after generation, mended and restored by the hands of workmen, mean nothing, are nothing, and have no heart and no value; - but there is much beauty here, because everywhere there is much beauty. Waters infinitely full of life move along the ancient aqueducts into the great city and dance in the many city squares over white basins of stone and spread out in large, spacious pools and murmur by day and lift up their murmuring to the night, which is vast here and starry and soft with winds. And there are gardens here, unforgettable boulevards, and staircases designed by Michelangelo, staircases constructed on the pattern of downward-gliding waters and, as they descend, widely giving birth to step out of wave. Through such impressions one gathers oneself, wins oneself back from the exacting multiplicity, which speaks and chatters there (and how talkative it is!), and one slowly learns to recognize the very few Things in which something eternal endures that one can love and something solitary that one can gently take part in."

And you know what brought it on? I HAVE BUNNIES! Honestly, in our front yard, there are two brown bunnies who nibble on our plants. They often come into the backyard when we're chilling out there...and they're so damn CUTE! ^_^

Teehee. Yay for bunnies!

Nice page, very, very nice.
Rarely does inspiration lie in anothers words. Normally actions inspire. When words cause perspiration we refer to the author as a poet.
