every day

Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.

~Matsuo Bashō, Oku no Hosomichi, 1689


time illusion

“For life is full of illusions
None as persuasive as time”

…Bryant H. McGill

in a grain of sand

To see a world in a grain of sand
and a heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.
…..William Blake

every moment

“Take every precious moment
And spend it well my friend”

…Bryant H. McGill

Sonnet XXIX

When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself, and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess’d,
Desiring this man’s art, and that man’s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings

……William Shakespeare
