The World Within

Samothraki IslandSamothraki Island by Dafnes Samothraki

"No one else has access to the world you carry around within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it. No one else can feel your life the way you feel it. Thus it is impossible to ever compare two people because each stands on such different ground. When you compare yourself to others, you are inviting envy into your consciousness; it can be a dangerous and destructive guest."
John O'Donohue (Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom)

  3. I think that any of John O'Donohue's books are well worth the read, Anam Cara especially. It means "Soul Friend" in Gaelic as you probably know.

  4. Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely week too.

  5. so true... and i love when birds fill the sky like this...

  6. Extraordinary, Noelle. When I first saw the word, "murmuration", I immediately ran to google before even finishing the post or watching the video prior to the post. I've seen similar events and have been totally enchanted but I've never seen anything on this scale. How people can overlook this is unfathomable to me. I was actually surprised by the contrast between the traffic driving by in the lower part of the screen and the magnificent display above. I wonder if anyone pulled over to just watch and enjoy.

  7. Thank you Jenny. Always nice to see you here whenever you have a moment. So glad you liked it!
