For Every Relative Fragment

“There is not a fragment in all nature,
For every relative fragment of one thing
Is a full harmonious unit in itself.”

        1. I usually have several books stacked next to the bed I am involved with. Definitely leaning towards a variety of ‘shorts’ collections for bedtime reading. Just began The Norton Book of Women’s Lives edited by Phyllis Rose. It’s a fat Anthology of of excerpts from twentieth-century memoirs, journals, and autobiographies of women.

    1. Definitely not a Greeting Card quote.

      John Muir’s words are so relevant to the feeling I would get way up in the midst of ‘nowhere’ in Oregon. Not only did all the flora, fauna, wildlife, insects, mineral, and weather components of nature appear to be one glorious interconnected living thing, but the peace and harmony of this beautiful undisturbed collaboration was a consciousness game changer for me.

      And always good for a laugh were the forms and formalities of the inventories we were doing that carefully segregated and separated every species, often leaving out some, including others, and attempting to reduce the wildness of ‘nowhere’ to number crunched recommendations for management.

  1. You have presented a lovely collection of photos, thoughts and beliefs. I hope one day our world can all get on a Prayer Wheel which accepts various faiths and philosophies. Walking together and working on the same goals of love and peace. . . I liked the Elk Song here and also the Pink Floyd song previous post, JoHanna. Now, on to our busy days. . .

    1. If you click on the photos they turn into an enlarged slideshow format and will give the location and narration of what, who, when, where, the photos were taken.
      Thank you for your kind words and visit. Have an excellent and peace filled weekend.
