Photo Diary: Solitude

fly
“You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts;
And when you can no longer dwell in the solitude of your heart you live in your lips, and sound is a diversion and a pastime.
And in much of your talking, thinking is half murdered.
For thought is a bird of space, that in a cage of words may indeed unfold its wings but cannot fly.”

“There are those among you who seek the talkative through fear of being alone.
The silence of aloneness reveals to their eyes their naked selves and they would escape.
And there are those who talk, and without knowledge or forethought reveal a truth which they themselves do not understand.
And there are those who have the truth within them, but they tell it not in words.
In the bosom of such as these the spirit dwells in rhythmic silence.When you meet your friend on the roadside or in the market place, let the spirit in you move your lips and direct your tongue.
Let the voice within your voice speak to the ear of his ear;
For his soul will keep the truth of your heart as the taste of the wine is remembered
When the colour is forgotten and the vessel is no more.”

Khalil Gibran

Photo Diary: Change

trees
“Your desire to change is simply a symptom of growing in a certain direction.  You are as naturally flowing in a new direction as a tree putting out a new branch.  In the process of growth, the oak is not better than an acorn.  Because what does it do?  It produces acorns.  So an oak is an acorn’s way of becoming others.” – Alan Watts
