Forwarding the light.

“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” -Mark Twain +++ Volunteers were forwarding/sharing the lights with passersby and/or strangers – seen @ Union Square station in New York. It’s December already – good time of year to think about “pay it forward”…Spread kindness!     P.S. I may have shared this image here or somewhere before, but this is one of my favourites so why not? ;) ©Mariko Evans

Misty morning rain

“I have often thought that we do not have nearly enough words for rain, especially as this was once a rainforest. There is booming rain, whispery rain, rain that lulls you to sleep, and rain on the leaves which sings you awake; there is soft rain, hard rain, sideways rain, rain that makes you instantly wet, and rain that leaves soft kisses on your cheek, like the wings of a butterfly. Rain brings us all the shades of gray, but it also brings us the wonderful greenery that surrounds us and blesses us all.” – Regan D’Andrade +++ ©Mariko Evans …

Misty Sunset

It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments.  – a.j. lawless. +++ ©Mariko Evans

Peace, Light, Love.

For children. For all. For earth. Do not fight. Do not hate. LOVE. +++ My thoughts on 911 – after seeing devastations made by human, and nature.   ©Mariko Evans      

Stay…

“Memories of childhood were the dreams that stayed with you after you woke.” -Julian Barnes

Peace at Sea

Peace flows into me As the tide to the pool by the shore; It is mine forevermore, It ebbs not back like the sea. -Sara Teasdale +++ ©Mariko Evans

Counting moments.

“Forever is composed of nows.” ― Emily Dickinson +++ She was playing with sand as if she counts moments – like a sand clock. seen @ English Bay, shot by an expired film. +++ ©Mariko Evans
