To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common–this is my symphony.~William Henry Channing

  6. I love the way you capture the light on the right side. Did you photoshop it or did that happen? No matter it is beautiful and perfect. Thanks for linking to Sunday Stillness.

    1. Thank you, Janis! Actually I had a macro filter with a huge crack on one side on my lens and the light refracted that way. Sometimes beauty comes through the broken :-)
