The Yellow House

"Sorrow prepares you for joy. 
It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. 
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. 
It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. 
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place."

My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music."

Rebel Child

"Rebel children, 
I urge you, 
fight the turgid slick of conformity with which they seek to smother your glory."

MySpot: Green Cathedral of Summer

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, 
just as things grow in fast movies, 
I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby
