Mom’s Thoughts: A Gardener’s Notebook

“Where do we find peace?
Peace is in the rosy softness of a new dawn breaking.
It’s the sound of the wind across the mountain peak,
the quiet and mystical beauty of a snow-flake drifting silence downward to a land blanketed in white.
Peace is the elusive Kingdom of the Soul.”

“Today, the inaugeration of the first black President in our first democratic government: what a day of jubilance, tears, sadness, happiness, nostalgia, optimism for the future and above all peace. Today embraced every human emotion, by which people of all colours and creeds were joined together.  It was like a garden suddenly opening every bud to flower and every single variety, flowering and giving off their many perfumes to each other to fill the whole garden with the most amazing colours, vibrant and retiring, fused close together to form a picture of beauty never ever seen before. This was a sight and a perfume, which surely is the 20th century miracle.”
– Hazel Margaret Lock

10th of May in the year 1994.

“Everyone has some talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it may lead.”

PS

“All our dreams can come true…if we have the desire (burning), determination, courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them (and it’s often through the very dark places where they may lead)…long enough.”
