“If gold has been prized because it is the most inert element,
changeless and incorruptible, water is prized for the
opposite reason — its fluidity, mobility, changeability that make it a necessity and a metaphor for life itself.
To value gold over water is to
value economy over ecology, that which
can be locked up over that which connects all things.”
~ ` ~ Rebecca Solnit
“How inappropriate to call this planet earth
When it is quite clearly Ocean “
~` Arthur .c. Clarke
Life is always beautiful,
just find where you stand &
Every wave has a
story to tell….
“ In a drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans….
in one aspect of you
are found all the aspects of existence “
~~ khalil Gibran

“The wonder of nature

Learn to be in the present,
withdraw your energy from
the past . Don’t waste your
time in Memories , what is
gone is gone__say goodbye
to it & close the chapter.
Do no dwell in the past,
do not dream of the future,
concentrate the mind on
the present moment..
Don’t let yesterday use up too much
~~~ Cherokee Indian Proverb
In the carriages of the past
you can’t go anywhere..
~~~ Maxim Gorky
The living moment
~~ D. H . Lawrence
Its not what if…
It’s what now
what you are is what you have been.
What you’ll be is what you do now.
The pond stood still
To grow lilies
We must leave it dirty
The water invites the frogs
Croaking singing now every night
To grow lilies in the still pond
We must create an entire world
is this how it all began ?
to grow lilies
( words : Divyam Surabhi )
When despair for the world grows in me,
and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be —
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feed
I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought or grief.
I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
~~ Wendell Berry
Creativity is the Blue Heron within us waiting to fly;
through her imagination, all things become possible.”
~~ Nadia janice
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
before my lens…..
Trust freely the strength
of the wind…
