“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.” ~ Henry James
Saturday afternoon. Rainy and windy, 55 degrees.
Oh I feel terrible. I missed my mother-in-law’s birthday on Tuesday, and that is a true misgiving on my part because she is the kindest woman I have ever known. I’ve been saving the video below just for her, and then because of the craziness that is my life, I forgot.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Joyce! I hope you had a lovely one.
Starry Nights time-lapse video by Jan Hattenbach:
StarryNights is a collection of astronomical time-lapse videos recorded of the last three years.
A November Sunrise
Wild geese are flocking and calling in pure golden air,
Glory like that which painters long ago
Spread as a background for some little hermit
Beside his cave, giving his cloak away,
Or for some martyr stretching out
On her expected rack.
A few black cedars grow nearby
And there’s a donkey grazing.
Small craftsmen, steeped in anonymity like bees,
Gilded their wooden panels, leaving fame to chance,
Like the maker of this wing-flooded golden sky,
Who forgives all our ignorance
Both of his nature and of his very name,
Freely accepting our one heedless glance.
~ Anne Porter
