She has sent out her maidens; she calls from the heights out over the city. Proverbs 9.

No one can understand the heights of heaven, the depths of earth, or everything on a king’s mind and heart.

The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.  

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Of what use, however, is a general certainty that an insect will not walk with his head hindmost, when what you need to know is the play of inward stimulus that sends him hither and thither in a network of possible paths?

I wonder if anyone else has an ear so tuned and sharpened as I have, to detect the music, not of the spheres, but of earth, subtleties of major and minor chord that the wind strikes upon the tree branches. Have you ever heard the earth breathe? Kate Chopin

The act of contemplation creates the thing contemplated. Isaac D’israeli

SOUTH GOLDEN BEACH SUNDAY 033

It’s little I care what path I take,
And where it leads it’s little I care;
I wish I could walk for a day and a night,
And find me at dawn in a desolate place
With never the rut of a road in sight,
Nor the roof of a house, nor the eyes of a face.

EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY, Departure, Collected Poems, 1923

Cause we’re all in the mood for a melody, And you’ve got us feeling all right. Billy Joel.

yesterbeats 013

There are 4 things you must never do: lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

Brianne Kelly Darragh . IRELAND.
