Bloom even though no one is watching

I think this is a passion flower, blooming so beautifully in a low dark corner, even though it was so hard to see. It calls to mind this quote:

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

–William W. Purkey

Carpe Diem

 

“Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.”—Horace

 

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”—Eleonara Duse

Be Like A Bird

“Let us be like a bird for a moment perched
On a frail branch when he sings;
Though he feels it bend, yet he sings his song,
Knowing that he has wings.”

-Victor Hugo

The group, Libana,  sings a round based on Victor Hugo’s words. You can hear it  in at CD Baby. This makes a good repetitive chant to sing. I have a group meeting at my home . Sometimes we sing this.

“A bird sits on the dry twig of a tree and eats a piece of fruit it has found somewhere. It knows that the twig may break at any moment; so it is very alert as it sits on the twig. You should understand that this world is like that. Everything may be lost at any moment. You should remember that, children. Be sure to hold on to the truth that only God is everlasting. Then there will be no reason for sorrow

-Amma
