a river runs through it.....

and dreams that storms will bring him peace'

natural beauty


Tolstoy

"I often lie awake at night from happiness, and all the time I think of our future life together. I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness. And then, on the top of all that, you for a mate."

exhilaration

arms outstretched
eyes closed
wind pushing
against my body
cooling my soul

finding
hope
in
mock
flight
